This topic refers to functionality that is only available to accounts on the QuickBase Platform, QuickBase Unlimited, or QuickBase Enterprise plans. If you do not see the functionality described here, either your account or realm has not been configured to show it, or your account is not on one of those plans.
Note: If you want users to sign in to QuickBase using your organization's network login and password, you can. Look into implementing LDAP authentication or SAML authentication for your realm. Realm policies, set using the Policies tab, do not apply when an external authentication system is implemented through LDAP or SAML.
A lot of network administrators have high standards when it comes to password security. If you have a special password format that you require members of your organization to use, you’d probably like to carry those requirements over to your firm’s QuickBase applications. No problem. Realms let you set your own specific password policies across all your QuickBase accounts and applications.
On the My Apps page, click Manage name_of_realm, then click the Policies tab.
Set the following options in the Password Policies section of the page:
Minimum Length. Are your users pithy to the point of a security breach? If so, you can force them to create a longer and more secure password. To do so, enter the lowest number of characters you'll allow.
Require Mixed Case. QuickBase passwords are case-sensitive. Passwords with mixed case are less predictable and therefore more secure. Turn on this checkbox to force users to combine capitals with lowercase letters.
Passwords expire. Click the dropdown and select the time interval at which you'll force users to create a new password. Choose Never if you want to adopt a "no-expiration" password policy. You can also require a change every 60, 90, 120, 180, or 360 days.
Note: The password policy set from the Policies tab will take effect when you save your changes, but each user must change their password before you can be sure that the policy is implemented for everyone. Users will be forced to change their passwords when they expire, but they may have non-compliant passwords before that point.
Size of Password Store. It's bad practice to let your staff members use the same password over and over again. Decide how many original passwords they must come up with before repeating an old password (5? 10?) and enter that number in the Size of password store field. (Note: If you've specified that passwords should never expire, you cannot set this value.)
