Password policy for Confluence

Apparently the Cloud version of Confluence natively has a password policy manager, but not so the non-cloud version.  I only see one password policy plugin available and it it has mixed reviews with less than 50 installs.  Does anyone know if a password policy is on the roadmap for future Confluence upgrades?  Has anyone actually used that plugin with an internal directory and found it to work okay?  Thanks!

Hi Kathy,

I know this plugin Enterprise Password Policy for Confluence very good and I can answer if you have any questions about it. You need to configure your own password policy and enable it. After it all users have to change their password once on first login (plugin can't check current passwords) and it works only for confluence internal users. It is easy to use.


Best Regards,

Thanks a lot, Daniel!  I actually did install it on trial yesterday and it works great so far.   So good to hear that others have a good experience with the plugin as well.

The feature request is here –

If you have the time it's a good idea to Vote on it (for the love of gosh please don't comment "+1").  If you could, Atlassian appreciates if you can comment your use-case for more detail.

Most people handle this external to Confluence. Other products are better suited to this ability for now.

Thanks, Steven.  I added my vote/comment to that one last year.  Still waiting. smile
