    How long does oracle wait to reset the failed login attempts counter

    Chuck1958
      If I set failed_login_attemts in my profile to 3, what's the window of time before it resets the counter?

      IOW is it 3 failed logins in 1 hour, 1 day, 1 year, forever? Does the counter only get reset when someone successfully logs on?

      Is it tied to the password_lock_timeout setting (which is documented as being for automatically unlocking the account)?

      I have not been able to find any documentation on this?

      TIA
