Lockout after multiple failed authentication requests

In the docs e.g. at https://docs.tibco.com/pub/spotfire_server/10.2.0/doc/html/TIB_sfire_server_tsas_admin_help/GUID-E081E558-D016-412F-AC14-9C693E0E1EA3.html it is implied that a user will be locked out after multiple failed authentication attempts.

Where do I edit the settings for this lockout? I created a test account and entered an incorrect password 30 times without being locked out.

Thank you for your clarification. We will look into our LDAP settings.

The lockout that the documentation warns about would happen in the external authentication provider (e.g. the LDAP server). The Spotfire Server has no such functionality built-in.

Are you using LDAP authentication in your test above?
