You can disable and bypass password policy evaluations.
The PingDirectory server provides a global configuration
disable-password-policy-evaluation) that can disable most
password policy evaluation processing, which is convenient for those production
environments that do not require password policy support. If the
disable-password-policy property is set to true, passwords are still
encoded and evaluated, but only account expiration and account disabling is in effect. All
other password policy properties, such as password expiration, lockout, and force change on
add or reset, are ignored.
The server also supports the use of a
bypass-pw-policy privilege, which
can skip password policy evaluation for operations on a per-user basis. If a user has this
privilege, then they are allowed to perform operations on user entries that would normally
be rejected by the password policy associated with the target entry.
This privilege does not have any effect for bind operations.
