On Friday, November 17 at 10:00 am, a change will be made to the CLIENTS profile in Banner that will affect how it handles password expiration. The main part of the change is that going forward, passwords will now expire in 90 days with no grace period, and no locking of the account. Previously, passwords would expire in 75 days, with a 15 day grace period before the account would be locked.
This change is necessary because Banner 9 does not currently handle the grace period or the account lock. With this change Banner 9 CAS logins will continue to work even if the person’s database password is expired. When using Banner 8 or other tools (e.g. SQL Developer) the user will get a change password notice on their next login attempt after the password expiration time has been reached.
This change has been tested in the test and development environments.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this change, please contact Kent Covert.
