Application authentication

This topic describes how to set the password policy when using LoadRunner Enterprise's built-in user management for authentication.

Note: We recommend using SSO or LDAP because they are a more secure type of authentication. For details, see LDAP authentication and SSO authentication.


When using internal application authentication, the LoadRunner Enterprise administrator can use the default password policy, or can set the password policy according to the needs of their organization.

The LoadRunner Enterprise administrator and the tenant user can also change passwords for users that are set to log in to LoadRunner Enterprise using their LoadRunner Enterprise passwords. For details, see Change a user's password.
