To set the lockout feature:

  1. From the Tasks menu, in the Administration module, select Users.
    The Administer Users page opens.
  2. Click the Lockout Configuration link.
    The Lockout Configuration page opens:

    Lockout Configuration

  3. To activate the lockout feature, set the Lockout Enabled value to TRUE.
  4. For the # of Failed Attempts, enter a value between 1 and 25.
  5. Click Submit.
    The system displays a confirmation message.

OpenClinica tracks the number of consecutive failed login attempts. After that number equals the value specified for the # of Failed Attempts, the user cannot log in to OpenClinica. For the user to regain access to OpenClinica, an administrator must unlock the user’s account in the Administer Users interface.
