SuiteCRM Password Requirements

Is there a way to specify that a password for Suite must be a min of 12 characters and then conform to the following requirements?

Must contain at least 3 of the following character types:

  • Upper case
  • Lower case
  • Numeric
  • Non-alpha characters


Yes there is a way to do this. I have created this functionality which hopefully should be coming out in the near future as it is still a pull request on GitHub. My code is currently in the pipeline for being tested and reviewed by the team. Hopefully this will get you shortly.

Thanks for the reply and for contributing what sounds like it will be a great enhancement. Is there a link to your changes in GitHub if we wanted to look at applying them before they are officially released? I am particularly interested in changing the default password length to 12 from what appears to be the default 6.

The branch is called "blocking merge notification " <-- weird name i know


This code has not been formally tested.!!! Download at your own free will

Please do tell me how you get on with it though as i made it XD

And yes, you can set many variables as you have asked for in your initial post. You can also set how many login attempts a person can have for a set amount of time. you are also able to set the time parameter.

If you do install it and dont know how to use it (There are no docs to tell you how to use the functionality)… I will happily write one up for you if need be.

Thanks. I will take a look and let you know how it goes. Appreciate the help!
