The Team Server password policy can be used to create a more secure Team Server for your organization.

A changed password policy is enforced when passwords are changed. Users will need to be forced to change their password in order to comply with a new policy. Users can change their password by clicking the Forgot password on the Team Server sign-in page.

Configuring the password policy should only be done by application administrators who are familiar with installing and configuring software and databases.

The password policy settings are not available in a hosted Team Server.
