Abstract

How to enforce a strong password policy on Sitecore Core roles.

Applies to

All core roles

In the web.config file, in the <membership> section, you can set the following properties:

  • minRequiredPasswordLength

  • minRequiredNonAlphanumericCharacters

  • maxInvalidPasswordAttempts

  • passwordAttemptWindow

  • passwordStrengthRegularExpression
