Password Policy configuration security item

Hello everyone,

I try to activate the password policy on JIRA (6.3.15). I follow the directives on this document :

But I'm blocking on the first step : find security item in menu.


I already checked and I have "Administrators permissions"...





And globales permitions.


Did I need to do something (restart server) or add more permitions to acces to "security item" ?

Have you tired just g g -> password ( gg is the keyboard shortcut to search)?

Also, are you using the internal directory?  If not, then the password policy can be disabled if it's being handled externally.

I'm feeling a little stupid :3

I fix it with the g+g and searching "mot de passe" (password in french...).

Thank for your help.

g+g has been a real help for me - the admin stuff has been rearranged so often, I've given up trying to remember where anything is.
