Azure AD Account lockout RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm testing Azure AD account lockout.


    "After 10 unsuccessful sign-in attempts (wrong password), the user will be locked out for one minute. Further incorrect sign-in attempts will lock out the user for increasing durations."

    cf: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/active-directory-passwords-policy

    My testing is:

    - access https://portal.azure.com/ 
    - enter id and WRONG password 20 times
    - after that, enter id and CORRECT password


    - I can log in http://portal.azure.com  without lock out 1 time


    Please tell me how my account is locked out.

  • When you entered the incorrect credentials 20 times, after how much time frame did you try the correct credentials ?

  • Less than 10 seconds.

  • I'm seeing exactly the same thing here.

    Was there any explanation given for this?
