Prevent single extranet user from beeing forced for a new password

Kasper Legarth


We are building a solution for a customer where they have set up extranet with users from BC.
When the extranet user is logged in they have access to place orders and see the latest orders etc. We have set up so the extranet users must create a new password each 180 days.

We have a single extranet user that we use for system purposes, like getting some information from BC for visitors not logged in. Is it possible to disable the need for password change for that single user? By a scheduled task or something like that?

Kind regards

Hi Kasper,


I believe all you have to do is to keep updating the AccessUsePasswordDate field in the database. You can do that with either an Application Start notification or a scheduled task and keep pushing that data forward. You may even try to define that date in the future (i.e. 2999-01-01), but it would be set to "today" if/when the user updates it's password.


Best Regards,
