Alfresco Engineers ..Please have a look at this

Question asked by ayushjohari on Dec 11, 2007
I would like to know if there is a way of limiting the number of tries a user can try to login to alfresco through the webclient. I have looked through the forums and do not find a suitable solution.

Basically, I want to end the session for the user if the login tries exceed a certain number. How can i modify the config files to do the certain action?

As in the current alfresco setup, a user can try unlimited times to login through the web client. I want to limit this by locking the user to login for a certain period.

We are using Alfresco 1.4 community version.

I need to resolve this issue as soon as possible. Basically allow the users to enter their credentials just 5 times or higher and if exceeded their account can be locked for some period.

Another way if i can know is to monitor the users trying to login to alfresco and track any failed authentication with the username data. And auditing can only track through the web client.

Thanks
Ayush
