Issue/Introduction

For Spectrum 21.2.1. there is a new account lock that will lock the account after 5 failed attempts.

When attempting to login we see the following error: SPC-OCA-10707: Your account has been temporarily locked for 10 minutes due to 5 failed login attempts.  Please try again later.

Environment

Release : 21.2

Component : Spectrum OneClick

Resolution

The setting DOES affect LDAP and is highly recommended due to enhanced security not to disable this.  This can be disabled by entering a "0" in the lockouttime in the config.xml file noted below.  However, this is not recommended by Engineering and they would suggest modifying the Lockout time or retry count instead.

$SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/spectrum/META-INF/context.xml

failureCount
Specifies the number of continuous failed login attempts before locking out the user.
Default: 5

lockOutTime
Specifies the lockout duration in seconds. Set value to zero to disable the lockout option.
Default: 600
