Projects:Change password/User Guide



This project adds the option to define a number of days to password expiration to all users on that client. Configuration is made at Client, setting Days to Password Expiration and affect all users on that client.

By default last updated password date of the user is stored, if last update password date of the user plus days to password expiration defined in the client is reached, the user will not be able to login until the password is changed. User will be forced to introduce a new password different from the previous one.

Every time user changes the password, last update password date of the user is updated with the actual date, even if password has been changed from the backend and date has not been reached.

The implementation works for the backend and mobile.


During login (Backend and WebPOS), the process will check if the user has reached the limit date for the password, in this case, the interface will ask to renew the password, and the new limit date will be updated once the new password is saved.

Also password could be renewed from the backend, in User windows, using password field to change the password.
