  • inactivity_timeout - Long - The length of time, in milliseconds, of inactivity before the UI will log out a user. This value is truncated to minutes.

  • concurrent_session_limit - Long - The number of times a single user can be logged in simultaneously.

  • ip_whitelist - Array<String> - The list of IPv4 or IPv6 addresses that are exempt from being locked out of the system.

  • host_lockout - Object - The host_lockout represents specific lockout settings for failed login attempts from a single source. If multiple failed login attempts from a single host are detected, that host will not be allowed to make additional login attempts for a period of time. To disable the host_lockout, set this field to null.

    • host_lockout.maximum_failures - Long - The maximum number of failed login attempts during the attempt_window.

    • host_lockout.attempt_window - Long - The length of time, in milliseconds, during which a maximum number of login failures can occur before the system is locked. This value is truncated to minutes.

    • host_lockout.duration - Long - The length of time, in milliseconds, that the system is locked if the maximum login failures value is exceeded. This value is truncated to minutes.

  • account_lockout - Object - The account_lockout represents specific lockout settings for failed login attempts for a single account. If multiple failed login attempts for a single account are detected, that account will not be allowed to make additional login attempts for a period of time. To disable the account_lockout, set this field to null.

    • account_lockout.maximum_failures - Long - The maximum number of failed login attempts during the attempt_window.

    • account_lockout.attempt_window - Long - The length of time, in milliseconds, during which a maximum number of login failures can occur before the system is locked. This value is truncated to minutes.

    • account_lockout.duration - Long - The length of time, in milliseconds, that the system is locked if the maximum login failures value is exceeded. This value is truncated to minutes.

  • logon_message - String - The message that will appear on the logon page. If this field is unset (null) then require_logon_message_acceptance is set to false.

  • require_logon_message_acceptance - Boolean - Set this option to require a user to "accept" the message on the logon page before being allowed to authenticate. This field is ignored if logon_message is not set.

  • allow_logon_page_password_autocomplete - Boolean - Select this option to enable the browser autocomplete option for the logon page password field. Disabling this option might not prevent some password managers from autocompleting the password field.

  • display_login_history_after_login - Enumeration: <ALWAYS|NEVER> - Set this option to have a Login History interstitial pop up after login. Values are:

    • ALWAYS - Always show the Login History interstitial
