Ratelimits of failed login attempts ‚Äč

By default, ChiefOnboarding uses allows users to attempt 10 times before the user gets blocked by IP. You can change the defaults:

AXES_ENABLED

Default: True. Set to False if you want to disable blocking users from trying again (not recommended).

AXES_FAILURE_LIMIT

Default: 10. Sets the amount of attempts before user gets blocked.

AXES_COOLOFF_TIME

Default: 24 (in hours). After 24 hours the IP address gets cleared again.

AXES_USE_FORWARDED_FOR

Default: True. In many cases ChiefOnboarding is deployed behind a proxy (i.e. Docker or Heroku reverse proxy). This allows you to get the IP address from the refer header. Without this, it would log internal ip addresses, which means that users will share the same ip address and get locked out unintentionally.
