Parameter documentation

This parameter can be used to define the period of time (measured in days) after which a user can change his or her password again. Only password changes that the user has requested are taken into account. If the password is set to a new value by the administrator, the user can/must change the password the next time he or she logs on (with the exception of SERVICE/SYSTEM users). If the system forces the password change (for example, after the period defined using login/password_expiration_time has expired or if login/password_compliance_to_current_policy = 1 indicating the enforcement of stricter password rules), this is also possible immediately.
