User Account Locking and Account Disabling

Account locking and account disabling are security features in WSO2 Identity Server (IS) that can be used to prevent users from logging in to their account and from authenticating themselves using their WSO2 IS account. The account locking feature is used to temporarily block a user from logging in, for example, in instances where there have been many consecutive, unsuccessful login attempts. Account disabling is a more of a long-term security measure, which disables the account for a significant amount of time.

Next pages describe various ways the account can be locked and disabled.
