Need to change passwords and password history.

Post by qra »

Could you please add a password history and the need to change passwords after a specified period. Now it can be implemented with AD and LDAP, but in small installations this feature would be useful (especially in EU (GDPR)).

Can you explain what "password history" entails?

Does this mean keeping a list of the clear text past passwords of the user or having the password validator not allow a previous password?

The point is that users should not reuse their previous "X" passwords. In my opinion, Mayan should only keep a checksum list of these passwords. Absolutely not in plain text.
