How to enforce a complex password policy within the Orion Platform

Updated September 25, 2018


This article provides details about enforcing complex password policies for Orion Platform users.


  • Orion Platform


Orion Platform accounts do not include settings that allow administrators to require users to log in using a specific password complexity. However, you can implement certain functionalities to secure user authentication.

These include:

  • Authenticating user identities using a password or passphrase. The Microsoft Active Directory Password feature enables organizations to enforce strong passwords using password and account lockout policies.
  • Enforcing strong passwords using a password policy group policy object (GPO) on your Microsoft Windows server. Various domain password policy settings control password complexity and requirements, such as the “Passwords must meet complexity requirements” policy setting.
  • Defining separate policies for user groups in your domain.
