Important: Password security settings apply only to users who have Maxymiser credentials, not to SSO-enabled users.

To modify an account:

  1. In Oracle Maxymiser, click the navigator Image of the main navigator menu in the upper left corner of the Maxymiser UI and select Admin Image of the Admin icon in Maxymiser's navigator menu. The Admin tab is displayed.
  2. Click Account Settings. The Account Settings page is displayed.
  3. View or modify the following account settings as needed:

    • Account name: The name you want to use for the account.
    • Account type: Select the account type (MaxTest, MaxTest Enterprise or MaxPredict). Contact Oracle Maxymiser for the features available for each account type.
    • Restrictions profile: The account restrictions model is used to control the maximum number of users, sites, campaigns and other objects for accounts used for demos and training purposes. Production accounts also have some restrictions, which may send notifications if users misuse Oracle Maxymiser (e.g. create hundreds of sites on a single account).
    • MaxRecommend: Enable or disable MaxRecommend.
    • SSO Partner: Enable a Single Sign On (SSO) from a third-party partner site. Select a site from the list. This must be enabled here before the third-party SSO site can be selected at user level.
    • Self-Serve Permissions Management: This setting can only be used by super administrators to enable self-serve permissions by account managers. Once Self-Serve Permissions Management is enabled for an account, account administrators can grant data exporter and publisher permissions and external access.
    • Renewal date: Specify the renewal date for the account. When an account is due for renewal, it is disabled.
    • Administrator: Specify the email address to which UI errors should be sent.
    • MaxMobile Web: Enable or disable the ability to create mobile campaigns on your site.
    • User Groups: Enable or disable the ability to create user groups. See user groups for more details.
    • Customer Support Identifier: This is used to help identify the client when raising support tickets.
    • Subscription Identifier: This is used to help identify the client when raising support tickets.
  4. Edit the non-SSO password security settings for the account.
    • Password expiration in days: The number of days that should pass after which a user has to change their password. The maximum value is 365.
    • Max number of failed attempts: The maximum number of failed login attempts before the system locks the user's Oracle Maxymiser account. The maximum value is 10.
    • Account lockout period in minutes: How long Oracle Maxymiser locks the user's account. The maximum value is 1440 (i.e. 24 hours).
    • Password history: The number of previous passwords that you cannot use. For example, 4 means that you cannot use the previous four passwords.
    • Password age in hours: Number of hours that must pass since the last password update, after which you can change a password. A UI administrator can override the password age for a user by selecting User must change password on the User Add/Edit page. This feature is useful if the user wants to change or restore their password before the password age expires.
    • Min number of lowercase letters: The default value is 1.
    • Min number of uppercase letters: The default value is 1.
    • Minimum number of digits: The default value is 1.
