lock account after multiple login failure

is there an existing function that allows the administrators to enforce a rule that after multiple failed login attempts by a user, that that user's account becomes "locked", and is only unlock-able by the administrator?

 

I know that there is an existing solution that after X number of failed attempts, a Captcha is required, but I was hoping for a "full account lock" solution if possible.

If you want to lock user you should delete it from jira-users and jira-administrators groups.

Unfortunetelly I do not know how to automate it.

Hi Earl,

As Vasiliy has pointed out there is no existing functionality in the product to block the user account. The feature that was implemented was the Captcha. As a workaround you may use firewall utilities to block such requests. One such utility is Fail2Ban

Peter
