Configure the password expiry notification period

Sep 22, 2016

If you enable Citrix Receiver for Web site users to change their passwords at any time, local users whose passwords are about to expire are shown a warning when they log on. By default, the notification period for a user is determined by the applicable Windows policy setting. To set a custom notification period for all users, you edit the configuration file for the authentication service.

Important: In multiple-server deployments, use only one server at a time to make changes to the configuration of the server group. Ensure that the Citrix StoreFront management console is not running on any of the other servers in the deployment. Once complete, propagate your configuration changes to the server group so that the other servers in the deployment are updated.

  1. On the Windows Start screen or Apps screen, locate and click the Citrix StoreFront tile.
  2. Select the Stores node in the left pane of the Citrix StoreFront management console and, in the Actions pane, click Manage Authentication Methods.
  3. On the Manage Authentication Methods page, from the User name and passwordSettings drop-down menu, select Manage Password Options, and select the Allow users to change passwords check box.
  4. Select At any time... and make a choice under Remind users before their passwords expire.
Note: StoreFront does not support Fine Grained Password Policies in Active Directory.
