Handling QDS Account Password Expiration and Renewal¶
After 6 months, your password expires and a new password is required. QDS sends periodic alerts about password expiration, prompting you to renew the password.
If you forget to change the password before its expiration and try to log in, Qubole redirects you to the Reset Password page.
Qubole has added a password strength indicator on the Sign Up, Change Password, and Forgot Password pages. The password must contain:
- A minimum of 8 characters
- At least one alphabet in uppercase
- At least one special character (all special characters are accepted)
- At least one number
Here is an example of the password strength indicator on the Change Password page.
