View password policy settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    Our auditor who is looking at one of our SQL databases, wants a screen shot of the SQL password policy. Could anybody help me with finding this please?
    He wants to see the accepted password length, how many upper/ lower case characters, special characters. Expiration days..etc.

    I am not sure where to find this in SQL management studio.

    Any help is appreciated.
