Setting the password hint text in the Edge UI

Edge for Private Cloud v. 4.16.09

By default, when a user changes password in the Edge UI, a dialog box appears that contains fields to set the password and text describing the password requirements:

You can configure the text by setting the conf_apigee-base_apigee.passwordpolicy.pwdhint property in the /<inst_root>/apigee/customer/application/ file.

To set this property:

  1. Open the file in an editor. If the file does not exist, create it::
    > vi /<inst_root>/apigee/customer/application/
  2. Set conf_apigee-base_apigee.passwordpolicy.pwdhint. For example, set conf_apigee-base_apigee.passwordpolicy.pwdhint as:
    conf_apigee-base_apigee.passwordpolicy.pwdhint="Password must be 13 characters long and contain at least on special character."
  3. Save your changes.
  4. Make sure the properties file is owned by the 'apigee' user:
    > chown apigee:apigee /<inst_root>/apigee/customer/application/
  5. Restart the Edge UI:
    > /<inst_root>/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service edge-ui restart
