How is the password expiration time calculated when using the NMAS Universal Password?#The determination of whether a user's NMAS Universal Password has expired is not totally based on using the date and time value for the PasswordExpirationTime Attribute Value for a user. It is used but is first calculated dynamically on login then compared to it.
- Lookup the entity's associated Edirectory Password Policy PasswordExpirationInterval Attribute Value
- Examine the entity's nspmPassword attribute timestamp (PwdChangedTime).
- Add the PasswordExpirationInterval to the nspmPassword modification timestamp (PwdChangedTime) on the entity.
- If this value less than PasswordExpirationTime Attribute Value? then the PasswordExpirationTime value is updated.
- Compare PasswordExpirationTime value to the current server time to determine if the Password Expired.
PasswordExpirationTime is calculated#PasswordExpirationTime is calculated by adding the passwordExpirationInterval to the pwdChangedTime.
PasswordExpirationTime is calculated when there is a Password Modify Operation (determined from the PwdChangedTime) and and it is recalculated during login if the passwordExpirationInterval has been changed to a shorter amount of time or if the Edirectory Password Policy has been changed.
