- New User Accounts
- Enables users to create their own account via web interface.
- Lost Password
- Activates lost password feature for users. If “no” is selected here, the password can only be changed via the admin interface.
Normally, especially when using LDAP, you might want to consider to disable both above options, because you’d normally do that via LDAP.
This section allows you to define password requirements for the local user accounts.
Maximum failed logins¶
You can choose a value between 4 and 20. This defines how often a login to a user account may fail until Zammad will lock it. Please note that via UI the only way to unlock a user account is to change the password (either as admin or via password reset function (if enabled)). The default value is 10.
2 lower and 2 upper characters¶
You can add complexity into passwords by enforcing at least 2 upper and lower case characters. The default value is no.
This defines the minimum password length required (from 4 to 20). The default value is 6.
This enforces your users to at least use one digit with his password. The default value is yes.
Third party authentication is a great way to help your users to login to Zammad easier. If the account is yet unknown, Zammad will create a new user automatically, without the user needed to interact (e.g. type in his name). Another big advantage of this feature is that your user doesn’t need another password to remember.
