    Hi Miguel,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have told customer that he can utilize LDAP to achieve this. However he is still expecting Spotfire can provide this functionality for Database Authentication.

    Hi Wei,

    Usually authentication is delegated to an external application or service (i.e.: using LDAP, OIDC, NTLM, JAAS, etc).

    Therefore, it is the responsibility of that external specialized authentication application or service to handle password policies, and not something we would expect to be handled within the Spotfire platform.
