Prior to OnBase 9.2.0, password options were configured at the User Group level in the Password Options dialog box. Additional password options that applied to all OnBase users were configured in the Password Settings dialog box.

In OnBase 9.2.0, the ability to configure a password policy was introduced. A password policy is a set of rules designed to enhance the security of user passwords in your OnBase solution. A password policy forces users to create and use passwords that conform to the configured rules. Instead of password policies being configured at the User Group level, a default password policy is applied globally to all User Groups in your OnBase solution. Additional password policies are then defined to support OnBase User Groups that require more restrictive password policies.

If you are upgrading from a pre-9.2.0 version of OnBase, the password options from your previous OnBase version remain in effect until you create your first password policy. You cannot modify the password settings from your previous OnBase version. When creating your first password policy, you are given the option to select whether you want to use the password settings from your previous OnBase version to configure the new password policy.

Since you are given the option to select whether you want to use the password settings from your previous OnBase version when configuring a new password policy, it is not necessary to review the password settings from your previous OnBase version before upgrading. However, if you wish to continue to use the password settings from your previous OnBase version instead of configuring a new password policy, you must make any changes before upgrading.
