How many previous passwords can a gateway user use?

Preventing the use of previous  password is an important security compliance requirement.  This can be set under Settings->General-Authentication-> Password/Security Code Retries. If the retries is set to X,  then X+1 number of previous passwords will not be allowed when setting a new password.

In above image, the retries is set to '2' (x),  hence the last '3' (x+1) passwords of the user cannot be reused.
User can change their password in Accounts -> Password.

User will get the below error when they reuse the same password.

"Error: You should not reuse a previous password"
