Is there a way to set up an account to expire?


Hello Brightspace community.

At my institution, we frequently create manual accounts and I am wondering if there is way to set these to expire on their own without any intervention.

    Hello Ashley, there are a couple of config variables that can be used to setup the min and max age of a password.

    For a full list of authentication configs please see this page :

    Once one of these configs is enabled for a role ( for example : d2l.Auth.Password.Maximum
    AgeByRole) that role has to have the Change My Password Permission in the Account Settings in order for the user to be able to change it, otherwise the config will not work.

    My suggestion is to try these password configs in your test environment first, to ensure it meets your needs prior to enabling in production.

    Hope this helps.
