Does WindchillDS support password history & aging?

Does WindchillDS support password history & aging?

I did a quick search of PTC's knowledge base and the community and didn't find anything.

David,

I think if you turn on password verification, there are settings for history, length, types of characters, etc...

For example our passwords have to meet the following:

• 8 characters or more in length

• Contain at least one UPPERCASE letter:  ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

• Contain at least one lowercase letter:  abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

• Contain at least one numeral:  123456789

• Contain at least one special character:  !@#$%^&*()_+=[]\;’,./{}|:”<>?

We have our history set to saving the last 5 passwords, after that they can be reused.  This setting is user configurable.

I did experiment with password aging, for example having passwords expire after 90 days, but was unable to get it to work.

If I remember correctly, you have to do this all inside the admin tool for the WindchillDS, which is completely separate from the other Windchill admin tools.

What you're looking for is a WindchillDS Password Policy. See the below link for instructions on setting up a policy:
