Setting Global Account Options

  • Last updated on

Barracuda Managed Workplace account options add additional security to Service Center, including:

  • defining how users access the web console
  • protecting against brute force attacks

To set options for user sessions

  1. In Service Center, click Configuration > UserManagement.

  2. Click Global AccountSettings.

Type the number of minutes after which the user is logged out of Service Center if there has been no activity.
You need to log out and log in again before this setting is applied to the session.

The session never expires if it refreshes at a faster rate than the session expiration time when pages that auto-refresh are open, such as:

  • Central Dashboard
  • Alerts
  • Alerts Viewer
  • Network Services dashboard
  • Patch Management

Conversely, these pages display the login page if they refresh at a slower rate than the session expiration time.

You can adjust the auto-refresh rate of the Central Dashboard and the Alerts page in System Settings.


To set options for failed logon attempts

  1. In Service Center, click Configuration > User Management.

  2. Click Global Account Settings.

  3. Type the number of failed login attempts allowable within a defined period of time.

    Accounts that are locked out are unable to access the Service Center web console until an Administrator unlocks the account, but notifications for Alerts are still sent to the user.

  4. Click Save.

  1. In Service Center, click Configuration > User Management.

  2. Click Global Account Settings.
