How does the 'Maximum Password Age (expiration)' parameter in SysAdmin>Security>Security Options work?
Voyager looks at the most recent password for each operator in the operator_password table, checks the password_date value (including time of day), and adds the Maximum Password Age value to this date value. If the current date/time falls *after* that calculated value, the operator will be prompted for a password change the next time they log into a client.
Operator updates client password on 1/20/21 at 12:30pm
The Max Password Age value is set to 5 days
1/20/21 12:30 + 5 days = 1/25/21 12:30pm
If the operator logs in before 12:30pm on 1/25/21, the operator will not be prompted to change their password
If the operator logs in after 12:30pm on 1/25/21, the operator will be prompted to change their password
