Caché Login Authentication

With Caché Login authentication, Caché verifies the user name and password provided by the user with a user name and password stored in Caché. Caché stores only a hashed version of the password.

On the Edit Definition pages for a Caché Service, Password represents the Caché Login option. Here is the page for %Service_Console:

You can specify your own pattern for valid passwords on the System-wide Security Parameters page (click [Home] > [System Administration] > [Security] > [System Security] > [System-wide Security Parameters]) on the Management Portal.
