To help prevent unauthorized access, you can ensure that users change their passwords and PIN codes regularly.
You can ensure that users do not re-use passwords. The IDOL Community component can store a list of used passwords, and prevent users from re-using a stored password.
Community can also ensure that users keep passwords for a minimum duration. This option prevents users from immediately changing their password several times to return to a previous password.
You can use the
UserReadUserListDetails action to check the time remaining (in seconds) until password expiration for a user. If the password has expired,
-1 is displayed.
