Adding Security Policy
Adding a security Policy for select group of users.
Create a new Security Policy in the PortalGuard Configuration Editor.
Steps To Create a New Security Policy in the PortalGuard Configuration Editor
- Navigate to the PortalGuard Configuration Editor and select the ‘Security Policies’ tab
Modify your new security policy
- Click Create on the right-hand side
By default, the new policy will have everything disabled
- It must have a unique name and precedence set between 1-10
- The precedence is the order in which it will check policy it is important to set it to either the same precedence or lower than the default policy
- Must select which repository this security policy applies to
- If you only have one repository, select ALL
- In the lower pane on the right side, select 'add' to select which OU, Group, or individual User this policy will apply too
- NOTE: You may select multiple OUs, Groups, or Users here
Example: Users who cannot reset PW
- Each tab should be checked to ensure the policy is configured to meet requirements for the selected Groups, OUs, and/or users
- At minimum, you should ensure that the ‘Password Rules’ and ‘Lockout’ tabs are configured to be at least as strict as AD/Group Policy
- These can be configured to be more strict, but not less.
- Navigate to the ‘Actions’ Tab
- Under the ‘PW Reset’ tab, 'Allow users to reset forgotten passwords?' should remain unchecked
- This will prohibit users that fall under this policy from resetting their passwords through PortalGuard
