Give resellers more control of Password Strength Configuration

All our web servers have the "Password Strength Configuration" set to 30. One of our resellers wants to be able to change this and make it 60, however it's not possible for the reseller to do this while the value is set by the server administrator.


I would have assumed that resellers could create stricter password strength rules but not lesser strength rules, however at the moment they cannot modify the password strength rules at all if the rules are already set by the server admin. This needs reviewed.

The same goes for the password change frequency setting. Resellers should be able to force more frequent password changes, but not less frequent for security reasons.

Yes, this would be an excellent feature to have for resellers to have control of. If you ask the company that create the password strength rule, they have to change it for all their customers, i.e. server side change, which may not be appropriate for some of their customers. Please add this control for resellers too.

I disagree but I also force a minimum 70. However I would not be opposed to a reseller setting a higher minimum.

I disagree to allow control to resellers. Resellers dont bother about the server security and they will set very low password strength. All our servers are set with more than 85 strength only and we are not interested our resellers reduce it to 10.
