Subject Disable password timeout, reset
Date Wed, 30 Sep 2015 16:11:47 GMT
I set up an Archiva 2.2 server a while back, and thought I'd succeeded in
disabling the requirement to renew the password after so many days, not
allow reuse of the last X number of passwords, etc. Earlier this week I was
rudely surprised to find that I had to reset my password. How can I stop
this?

I am running Archiva on port 8080, starting it with

$ cd /opt/apache-archiva-2.2.0
$ nohup bin/archiva console start &

I created a ~/.m2/security.properties file based on the one at
http://archiva.apache.org/docs/2.2.0/adminguide/customising-security.html.
Mine is shown below. The two properties in bold I thought would disable
password expiration.

https://github.com/apache/archiva-redback-core/blob/master/redback-configuration/src/main/resources/org/apache/archiva/redback/config-defaults.properties

# Security Policies
#security.policy.password.encoder=

*security.policy.password.previous.count=-1security.policy.password.expiration.enabled=false*
security.policy.password.expiration.days=180
security.policy.password.expiration.notify.days=10
security.policy.allowed.login.attempt=10

# Password Rules
security.policy.password.rule.alphanumeric.enabled=false
security.policy.password.rule.alphacount.enabled=true
security.policy.password.rule.alphacount.minimum=1
security.policy.password.rule.characterlength.enabled=true
security.policy.password.rule.characterlength.minimum=1
security.policy.password.rule.characterlength.maximum=8
security.policy.password.rule.musthave.enabled=true
security.policy.password.rule.numericalcount.enabled=true
security.policy.password.rule.numericalcount.minimum=1
security.policy.password.rule.reuse.enabled=true
security.policy.password.rule.nowhitespace.enabled=true


Maybe that's not enough? In looking a the archiva-redback-core on GitHub, I
see *two additional settings* under Security Policies:

# turn off the perclick enforcement of various security policies, slightly
# more heavyweight since it will ensure that the User object on each click
# is up to date
security.policy.strict.enforcement.enabled=true
security.policy.strict.force.password.change.enabled=true

So, if I add these properties to my ~/.m2/security.properties file, set
both to false, kill Archiva and restart it, will this disable the password
reset requirement? If not, how can I do so?
