Defining password policy

You can define automatic password expiration and the maximum number of subsequent failed login attempts for all account users. When you use an External Single Sign-On Provider, you cannot configure the password policy.

Before you begin

  • You must have the Security Administrator role in Talend Management Console.
  • The External Single Sign-On Provider option is disabled.

About this task

You can toggle each of these options on or off without erasing your configuration. Both options can be applied to all users of the account.


  1. Go to Users & Security > Authentication.
  2. Toggle the User lock-out feature to Enabled, and define the number of subsequent failed login attempts and the Disabled duration (in seconds).

    When exceeding the number of failed attempts, users must wait for the user lock-out to expire.

  3. Toggle the Password Expiration to Enabled, and define Expiration interval (in days).

    When you enable this option, all passwords expire immediately. On the next reconnection, users are asked to set a new password.

    Information noteNote: Passwords must include lowercase and uppercase letters, one or more special characters, and be at least 8 characters long.
  4. Click Save.


The new password policy applies to every user.
