Locking out users after failed logins

Optionally, users, including the admin user, can be automatically locked out due to too many failed login attempts.

To enable user lockout after a certain number of login failures:

  1. Edit striim/conf/

  2. Delete the # before striim.node.MaxLoginRetries=5.

  3. Optionally, change the 5 to the number of login failures you want to allow.

  4. Save the file.

  5. Restart the server as described in Starting and stopping Striim Platform.

If the admin user has been locked out due to too many login failures, to reactivate the account:

  1. Open a terminal or command prompt.

  2. Change to the striim/bin directory.

  3. Enter -v true (in Linux) or sksconfig.bat -v true (in Windows).
