How do I change the password validity period on an AR

An administrator can manage the validity period of an password by changing the password policy.
1. Choose Maintenance > User Management > Password Policy. The Password Policy page is displayed.
2. In the Administrator area, set the administrator password policy. Perform the following steps:
a. Click Start to enable the password policy function. By default, this function is disabled.
Note: If the function is disabled, security risks may exist.
