Pre/Post Migration User Parameters Tab

Define public user-based parameters that can be included in the definition of post migration command steps. See the Stat User Guide, Appendix C: User-Specific Parameters.

Synchronizing User Access Information

After defining the access settings of one user, you can use that user as the source for synchronizing the access settings of multiple users. This way, if several users share many of the same access settings, you can update their settings simultaneously rather than one at a time.

Copy/Replace: Replace the users’ access settings with the settings of the sync user
Copy/Add: Add the sync user’s access settings to the users’ existing settings. This way, whenever a new application, queue, object type, etc. is added, you can update the access settings of the sync user and then use this option to update multiple users at once.
No Action: Do not modify the selected users’ access settings

Click Sync.

User Password Security Settings

In the Other Options tab of the System table, you can define password parameters for all Stat users.

For more information, see System Maintenance . To open the System table, select Maintenance | General | System Table. Then select the Other Options tab.

Password
Lifetime
(Required Value)

The number of days that a user's password is valid before they are required to change it. This setting has no effect if the Password Expire field is not checked. Valid values are 0 to 999.

NOTE: If you set the Password Lifetime value to 0, then the existing password is valid for 24 hours from the time you click OK or Apply.

Pswd Hist.
Lifetime
(Required Value)

The number of days Stat retains users’ password history. This value is used with the Limit Lifetime setting to prevent users from re-using the same password within the number of days indicated in this field. A setting of 0 means that no history is maintained. This setting has no effect if the Limit Lifetime field is not checked.

Minimum Length

The minimum number of characters required in a user account password

Max Failed Login

The maximum number of failed login attempts before the user account is locked out of Stat

Expire

Indicates whether users’ passwords expire after the number of days defined in the Password Lifetime field. If selected, users are prompted to change their passwords at login once they have expired. If blank, passwords never expire.

Limit Lifetime

Indicates whether users can use the same password indefinitely

Set Mandatory Characters

Enables the mandatory character fields for passwords. If this check box is selected, the settings for Upper Number, Lower, and Spec. Char. fields are active.

Upper

Indicates if users must have at least one upper-case character in their password. This setting has no effect if Stat Mandatory Characters is not selected.

Lower

Indicates if users are required to have at least one lower-case character in their password. This setting has no effect if Stat Mandatory Characters is not selected.

Number

Indicates if users must have at least one number in their password. This setting has no effect if Stat Mandatory Characters is deselected.

Spec. Char.

Determines if users must have at least one special character in their password. This setting has no effect if Stat Mandatory Characters is deselected. Special characters include the following:

} | { ‘ _ ^ }] \[ @ ? > = < ; : / . - , + * ) ( ‘ & % $ # ! “

LDAP Connection Maintenance

For customer sites that maintain LDAP user directories, Stat supports authenticating login credentials based on a user’s LDAP password rather than the default password defined directly in Stat. This allows sites that maintain a large number of user accounts to avoid maintaining an additional set of Stat-specific passwords. LDAP-enabled users can login to both the Stat Windows Client and the Stat Web Client and have their accounts authenticated with their LDAP passwords.

You configure LDAP domains in Stat by specifying the LDAP server parameters, including location, port numbers and the base DN paths used to search for user account directories. After specifying the base DN, you then specify a template DN which will be used to pre-populate the DN for individual users in the User Maintenance table. You can also use the template DN to test the connection between Stat and the LDAP server.

After configuring LDAP domains in Stat and assigning them to users, you “turn on” LDAP by selecting the Enable LDAP option in the System Maintenance table, Other Options tab, as described in the section Other Options Tab .

Stat supports encrypting communication between Stat and the LDAP server by enabling SSL.

LDAP connection security is controlled by the following user class rights:

The LDAP Connection Maintenance table is displayed in a standard maintenance window. To open this window, select Maintenance | Security Settings | LDAP Connect.
