Configuration of the login in the OpenOlat Administration


Here you can configure the syntax rules for the OLAT passwords. A minimum and a maximum length must be defined as a minimum. In addition, further requirements such as number of letters, upper and lower case, requirements for numbers and special characters as well as certain invalid values can be defined. Under the tab "Change policies" you can define how often certain users have to change their password.


Here administrators can activate self-registration and make further detailed settings in this context. Login forms can also be integrated into external websites. Furthermore, the validity period of the self-registration can be limited.
