The General page provides configuration options for a user’s password, inactivity timeout value, and bookmark single sign-on (SSO) control.
- In the left column, navigate to the Users > Local Users.
- Click the configure icon next to the user you want to configure. The General page of the Edit User Settings window displays. The General page displays the following non-configurable fields: Username, Primary Group, In Domain, and User Type. To set or change the user password, type the password in the Password field. Re-type it in the Confirm Password field.
- Optionally, force a user in the Local User Database to change their password at set intervals or the next time they login. To force a user to change their password at set intervals, type the expiration interval in the Passwords expire in x days field. To force a user to change their password the next time they log in, check Change password at next logon.
If you set a password expiration interval, type the number of days before expiration that users should receive notifications in the Show warning x days before password expiration field.
When configured and a password is expiring, a notification is displayed on the user’s Virtual Office page or the Administrator’s management console identifying the number of days before their password expires. Notifications also include a link to a screen where the password can be changed.
To set the inactivity timeout for the user, meaning that they are signed out of the Virtual Office after the specified time, enter the number of minutes of inactivity to allow in the Inactivity Timeout field. The timeout value also controls the number of minutes that a one-time password remains valid, when One Time Passwords are configured for a user.
The inactivity timeout can be set at the user, group, and global level. If one or more timeouts are configured for an individual user, the user timeout setting takes precedence over the group timeout and the group timeout takes precedence over the global timeout. Setting the global settings timeout to 0 disables the inactivity timeout for users that do not have a group or user timeout configured.
- To allow users to edit or delete user-owned bookmarks, select Allow from the Allow user to edit/delete bookmarks drop-down menu. To prevent users from editing or deleting user-owned bookmarks, select Deny. To use the group policy, select Use group policy.
