The following rules

variation of the previous that uses variations in case (uppercase or
have lowercase, uppercase, special characters, and digits.
Eight is the minimum
number of characters required (by default, but can be changed).
80 is the
maximum number of characters allowed (by default, but can be changed).
The password must contain characters from three of the following four character sets: lowercase, uppercase, number, and special character. The number of character sets is configurable (Default is three).
Six is the minimum
number of characters required (Default is eight, but can be changed).
Allows re-use of password after <number of> changes, (minimum is 0, maximum is 24, and default is 0). This setting enables the user to re-use an existing password after the specified number of password change instances. For example, If the value is set as 0, the user can re-use the same password immediately. If the value is set as 10, the user can re-use the current password after the next ten instances of password changes, that is, if the current password is xyxy, this password can be re-used after the next ten password changes.
Password can only be changed after <number of> hours (minimum is 0, maximum is 48, and default is 0). If the value is set as 0, the user can change the password immediately. If the value is set as 24, the user can change the password after 24 hours since change of the last password.
Password expires after <number of> days, (minimum is 0, maximum is 365, and default is 0). This setting notifies the user that the password is expiring in "x" number of days and that the account will be disabled if the password is not changed within the specified time frame. For example, if the value is set as 0, the password never expires.
Show warning message <number of> days before expiration, (minimum is 0, maximum is 31, and default is 0). This setting indicates when the user will be notified about password expiration. For example, if the value is set as 0, this setting is disabled, and no warning message will be displayed regarding expiration of the password. If the value is set as 5, a warning message will be displayed five days prior to the expiration of the password.
Prompt for confirmation <number of> days before expiration, (minimum is 0, maximum is 30, and default is 0). This setting indicates when the user has to be prompted about expiration and changing of the password. When prompted, the user has to either acknowledge the password expiry or proceed to change the password. For example, if the value is set as 0, this setting is disabled, and no confirmation prompt will be displayed regarding expiration or change of the password. If the value is set as 3, the user is prompted to change the password three days prior to the expiration of the password.
Collaboration Provisioning stores the password policy properties in a file
named passwordpolicy.properties under opt/cupm/sep. You can modify the
properties file to change the password policies as required. You must restart
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning whenever you modify the password
Unified Communications Manager Express allows a user to have only one
associated endpoint, Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning overcomes this
limitation, allowing more than one endpoint to be associated to the user.
In Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Express, new users are created with the same username
appended with a tilde (~) and sequence index (starting with 1) from the second
and subsequent endpoints (for example, TestUser and TestUser~1). You must use
the exact username to view the corresponding endpoint details in the Cisco
Unified Communications Manager Express web interface.
When you change the
password value in Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning, the password value is
changed for all of the corresponding user names in Cisco Unified Communications
