In Manage | Security, You can edit their privilege set to control whether their password expires and how quickly. For users that need a longer period before their password expires, give them a different privilege set with a longer expiration period (or one that never expires).
I tried already this function but I think it didn't work for the users that only use Web Publishing.
There is an option "Allow user to modify their own password". But I didn't see this option in the Web.
Is this the option you mean ?
Thanks for posting!
PhilModJunk is correct (thanks!), that would be the correct setting to change. You should be able to go to File -> Manage -> Security, click the tab for Privilege Sets and edit the privilege set web users login with. Is the option not available or are you unable to find it? Remember that, even with web users, the accounts are configured within FileMaker Pro. If the option isn't available, it could be one of the default privilege sets, Full Access, Data Entry or Read Only which are not modifiable.
thank you for your answers. But I didn't found this option, althrough I have |Full access] privelge set.
I added a screenshot of the privelge set that I would like to modify and deactivate their password expiration.
Can you please explain me exactly where I find this option ?
Many thanks in advance.
Specify Allow user to modify own password and then you can specify an expiration period.
I'm beginning to wonder if this isn't the issue here. Are you saying you are getting expired passwords and this option has not been specified for the user's privilege set?
exactly I don't selected this option and the web users are getting expired password.
Even if I select this option, the web user don't have the possibility to change their password. They must ask someone, who has full access privelege and FM Pro installaed on his laptop to do it. And this is not really practical.
I don't see how this could be happening. Is it possible that your users are encountering some kind of external authentication that requires a password before they ever get to the hosted database?
I think that this option "Allow user to modify their own password" is only for FileMaker Pro user (I mean the client application) and not for the Web Publishing user, what I need.
Otherwise I think we don't have any other authentication. But this dialog box about expiration comes after the authentication, exactly when we click on the link to try to access the database.
I'm probably a little bit late, but if anyone is reading this.. I had the same problem. Everytime I tried to enter to IWP with a new user, I got the "Password expired" popup.
I finally figured out that I had to uncheck the "User must change password on next login" when I created a new user. Apparently, IWP is not able to handle the password change, and forces you to exit.
So just don't create a new account with that option, and you'll be fine (at least, it worked for me)
