Password lockout criteria

You can be locked out of your account if you attempt to log in and fail consecutively.

Note: Account lock out applies only for local user registries.

The length of time that you are locked out of using the account is based on the number of consecutive attempts that you fail. The length of time increases as the number of consecutive failed attempts increases.

For example, you can be locked out for 15 seconds if you have five consecutive failed attempts, or 32 minutes for 12 consecutive failed attempts.
Note: External user registries, such as LDAP, might enforce their own lockout criteria.
