Setting a Password Policy


Recommended Posts

Tapestry allows managers to set their own rules in regards to password security i.e. the minimum number of characters and whether different cases/special characters are compulsory. This tutorial will show you how to edit your preferences regarding that.
It's really important to set a strong and secure password for your Tapestry account and that you don't share your password with other staff members on your account. Setting a strong password policy is one of the ways you can make sure each user is setting a secure password on their account too. If you're not sure what constitutes a secure password, you can take a look at this tutorial here.
The first step, as with all changes to the settings, is to click on the drop-down list from your name (1) and select 'Control Panel' (2).

Once you have selected that, you need to click on “Settings” (1), then “Password Policy” (2).
At first, the staff and relative policies will be set to a default minimum length of 12 characters.
In order to change the policy for staff or relatives, click on the appropriate "change minimum standards for.." button.


You then have a choice of choosing a preset weak, better or strong password policy, or creating your own custom policy. Again, we would really recommend either choosing the 'strong' option or setting your own strong custom policy. 



Once you have selected your chosen password policy you will need to go to the bottom of the page and select "Save".
Once that has been saved, all new passwords for managers and staff will have to meet the criteria set, but current passwords won't change to fall in line with your new preferences.
