Resource Options

Resource Options

A resource option is an attribute that can be optionally set on an entity in keystone. These options are used to control specific features or behaviors within keystone. This allows flexibility on a per-resource basis as opposed to settings a configuration file value that controls a behavior for all resources in a deployment.

This flexibility can be useful for deployments is setting different authentication requirements for users. For example, operators can use resource options to set the number of failed authentication attempts on a per-user basis as opposed to setting a global value that is applied to all users.

The purpose of this document is to formally document the supported resource options used in keystone, their intended behavior, and how to use them.

User Options

The following options are available on user resources. If left undefined, they are assumed to be false or disabled.

ignore_change_password_upon_first_use

Type: Boolean

Control if a user should be forced to change their password immediately after they log into keystone for the first time. This can be useful for deployments that auto-generate passwords but want to ensure a user picks a new password when they start using the deployment.

See the security compliance documentation for more details.

ignore_password_expiry

Type: Boolean

Opt into ignoring global password expiration settings defined in keystone.conf [security_compliance] on a per-user basis. Setting this option to True will allow users to continue using passwords that may be expired according to global configuration values.

See the security compliance documentation for more details.

ignore_lockout_failure_attempts

Type: Boolean

If True, opt into ignoring the number of times a user has authenticated and locking out the user as a result.

See the security compliance documentation for more details.

lock_password

Type: Boolean

If set to True, this option disables the ability for users to change their password through self-service APIs.

See the security compliance documentation for more details.

multi_factor_auth_enabled

Type: Boolean

Specify if a user has multi-factor authentication enabled on their account. This will result in different behavior at authentication time and the user may be presented with different authentication requirements based on multi-factor configuration.

multi_factor_auth_rules

Type: List of Lists of Strings

Define a list of strings that represent the methods required for a user to authenticate.
