Configure Administration Tool server settings

Use the Admin Setting page to configure administrator login options. You can configure the password expiration, the number of consecutive failed login attempts allowed and the length of a login session.

Admin Settings - Configure Administrative Server settings.

The following sections provide how-to instructions for changing password settings, session settings, and certificate settings:

Change password settings

Use the password settings to control how often an administrator needs to change the login password and to control how many consecutive failed login attempts are allowed before the administrator is prevented from logging in.

  1. Select Setup > Admin Settings.
  2. Type the number of days the administrator password is valid without changing it.
  3. You can leave this field blank, which is the default setting. When left blank, the password never expires.
  4. Type the number of consecutive failed login attempts to allow before preventing an administrator from logging in to the server.
  5. You can leave this field blank, which is the default setting. When left blank, there is no limit to the number of login attempts permitted.
  6. Click Save to accept the changes.
Note If the master administrator is locked out (or the wrong password is used too many times), contact Axway Global Support for the procedure to reset the required parameters.

Change session settings

Use the session settings to control how long an administrator can be logged into SecureTransport before the session expires and the administrator must log in again.

  1. Select Setup > Admin Settings.
  2. Type the number of minutes the session stays active. The default setting is 30 minutes.
  3. Click Save to accept the changes.
  4. Restart the Administration Tool server using the stop_admin and start_admin commands.
