Login with password wrong block active directory after one attempt


MARCO A (112) | asked May 15 '17, 5:29 p.m.

 Hi..

Normally my enterprise account is blocked after 3 attempt to login with wrong password.
If I use jazz rtc java api and try to login with my enterprise account and wrong password the account is blocked after only one attempt.
Why? Is there some autoretry mechanism?

RTC does nothing on that level. That is all done in the LDAP system. 


Having said that, I think I have had something similar with the Jazz.net authentication and the Eclipse client. So I would assume that there is some auto retry in the Java Client API, but I am not totally sure.

If you're using TeamRepository.login(), then yes it retries 3 times. The code looks like this

            for (int i = 1; i <= LOGIN_RETRIES; i++) {
                synchronized (lock) {
            ......
 
LOGIN_RETRIES is a constant with value 3.

Is possible disable retrie or modify value to 1 ?
