Magento prompts the password to be changes after 'X' days. How to change the value of admin dashboard password expiration period?
The password lifetime is set by default to 90 days. To change the password expiration lifetime:
- Go to Stores > Configuration > Advanced (Admin).
- Under Security section, change the value of Password Lifetime (days).
You can also disable this feature by leaving the value of this field empty.
If you do not want to force admin user to change the password, then you can change the value of Password Change from Forced to Recommended.
You could also change it in
app/etc/config.php by changing the key
admin/security/password_lifetime like this:
'admin' => [ 'security' => [ 'password_lifetime' => '0', ], ],
More information about this can be found in the Magento DevDocs page about other configuration paths.
Note that when you're in
production mode you will have to clear caches and make a static-content deployment:
bin/magento setup:upgrade bin/magento cache:clean bin/magento cache:flush bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
