log_path

string

Path of debug log file.

maxfailedlogins

integer

Specifies the number of failed login attempts in range 0 -10 before the user account is locked for the amount of time that is specified in lockout period. A value of 0 means that the feature is disabled and accounts are not locked out after failed login attempts.
