Release Notes

Customize password policy rules

  • Services: IAM
  • Release Date: March 20, 2019
  • API Versions Affected: 20160918

You can now customize the password policy rules for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure local users. When a user is created or when a user changes their password, the  service validates the password that is provided against the password policy to ensure that it meets the criteria for the policy. When a user logs in for the first time to change the password, or resets the password at any time, the password policy is evaluated and enforced. For more information, see Managing Authentication Settings.

API Update: This feature release also introduces the AuthenticationPolicy object and two new operations: GetAuthenticationPolicy and UpdateAuthenticationPolicy.  See AuthenticationPolicy Reference.
