Authentication with user name and password
If necessary, enter a user name and password with which a user can log on to SwyxWare Administration and the clients.
The user name must correspond to the UPN format (User Principal Name): User login name +"@" + UPN suffix. You can use the domain name or an alias as the UPN suffix.
You can set the UPN suffix in the server properties, see The "Security" tab.
Currently only the display name can be used to log on to SwyxIt! The display name can be set on the "Administration" tab, see Edit User Settings
Users configured before V 11.25 do not use UPN.
To enable these users to log in via UPN, enter the appropriate UPN for each user.
The user name is used to create a SIP user ID.
See also SIP User Name and SIP User ID; SIP password.
Force complex password:
As an administrator, you can force or deactivate the use of complex passwords as a general rule for SwyxServer in server configuration ( The "Security" tab)
In SwyxON , the rule to force the use of complex passwords is preset and cannot be revoked by any administrator.
This rule can be configured individually for each user.
You can select among the following three options in the "force complex password" option field:
* Use server default settings (<current setting>): ("Yes" or "No")
The general settings on the SwyxServer apply for the user. This option is set by default.
* Force complex password: "Yes"
Regardless of the SwyxServer configuration, the user must set up a complex password.
The corresponding dialog window with brief instructions is shown to the user when changing the password.
* Force complex password: "No"
Regardless of the SwyxServer configuration, the user must set up a simple password.
User must change the password at the next login:
When this checkbox is activated, the corresponding telephony or SwyxWare Administration user can no longer log back onto SwyxServer using the current account data, and will have to change the password at the next login.
Regardless of password settings, an attempt to re-enter the current password during password change will be checked by the system and will not be permitted.
The default setting on this checkbox is deactivated.
If a password is assigned to the user and the server rule "force complex password" is set, then the checkbox is automatically activated. However, you can set this activation back.
After a user has changed the password, the checkbox is deactivated automatically.
This setting can meet the following objectives:
* Forcing the use of complex passwords for specific users.
If the "force complex password" rule is activated in server configuration and/or user configuration, then the user will be able to continue to use the current password until the user decides to change the password or until the administrator forces password change.
* Guaranteeing better password discretion
If a user receives the account data from an administrator, then the new password will only be known to that user after it is changed.
