How Do I Cancel the Advance Warning of Password Expiration and Mandatory Password Change

How Do I Cancel the Advance Warning of Password Expiration and Mandatory Password Change


When I log in to the eSight, I receive an advance warning before the password expires every a specified period, for example, three months, and I am asked to change the password. If I do not change the password before it expires, I cannot log in after the password expires and have to change it immediately.

How do I cancel the advance warning of password expiration and mandatory password change or prolong the password change period?


Changing passwords periodically can improve user information security and reduce the possibility of account forgery. Exercise caution when canceling the functions and changing the password change period.

User information is more secure if a password is changed more frequently. However, you may forget the passwords if you change password frequently.

  1. Choose System > System Management > User Management from the main menu.
  2. In the navigation tree, select Password Policy.

    The eSight password policy includes Forcibly change an expired password, as shown in Figure 1. By default, the check box is selected. The default password validity period is 90 days and users are notified that their passwords are about to expire 7 days in advance.

    Users who have security management rights can modify the policy as follows:
    • Determine whether to require users to periodically change passwords. Select the check box to retain the function.
    • Prolong or shorten the password change period. Specifically, change the password validity period. The password change period is determined by the password validity period.
    • Change the number of days in advance users are notified that their passwords are about to expire.
    Figure 3-8 Password policy
    If a user logs in to the eSight when the password is about to expire, the user receives notifications and is asked to change the password, as shown in Figure 2. Users can change the password or ignore the notification and do not change the password. If the password is not changed after it expires, the user can log in only after changing the password.
