Configuring the Internal IDMS


Configuring the Internal IDMS

The internal IDMS is a built-in resource that exists by default when Kion is installed.

This IDMS stores user data in your Kion database. You can specify an optional MFA and password requirements.

To configure the internal IDMS:

  1. Navigate to Users > Identity Management Systems.
  2. Click the ellipsis menu next to the Internal Directory, and select Edit.
  3. In the Select MFA dropdown menu, choose a multi-factor authentication method to enforce. Users will be prompted to configure the additional method of authentication upon login. For more information, see Multi-Factor Authentication.
  4. Configure Log in Settings.
    • Lock user login after consecutive failures. This blocks continued log in attempts after a set number of failures in a row. Configure how many failed attempts are allowed before the account is locked.
    • Enable login after duration. Configure how long the account will remain locked after consecutive failures. If this is not enabled, the user is locked out until an admin resets their password.
    • Hide IDMS from login page. Enabling this option removes this IDMS as a selectable option on the login page.
  5. Configure Password Settings.
    • Password Expiration. Specify how long passwords are valid before users must update them. A value of 0 disables password expiration.
    • Minimum character length. Configure the minimum length of user passwords.
    • Number of past passwords. Specify how many unique passwords a user must use before they are allowed to reuse a previous password.
    • Advanced password security options. Select which advanced password requirements to enforce. Changing these settings will require all users to update their passwords upon next log in.
  6. Click Update IDMS.
