The credcheck PostgreSQL extension provides few general credential checks, which will be evaluated during the user creation, during the password change and user renaming. By using this extension, we can define a set of rules:
Release v2.2 adds a new feature, fixes a major bug with null passwords and fixes some issues reported by users since last release.
credcheck.whitelistthat can be used to set a comma separated list of username to exclude from the password policy check. For example:
credcheck.whitelist = 'admin,supuser'will disable any credcheck policy for the users named admin and supuser.
ALTER USER myuser PASSWORD NULL;
Extension upgrade requires a PostgreSQL restart to reload the credcheck library.
