Batch Synchronization: AcknowledgementFileName
Full file path to where we should drop the acknowledgement file for batch syncs.

(default {acs_root_dir}/batch-sync-ack-{authority}-{ansi_date}.xml, type number, scope instance)
Batch Synchronization: KeepBatchLogDays
The number of days to keep the log for a batch user synchronization job around. Say 0 if you want to keep the log forever. (default 0, type number, scope instance)
Batch Synchronization: SyncAddUsersToDotLrnP
Should we add users to .LRN? This requires .LRN to be installed, and has serious performance implications. (default 0, type number, scope instance)
Batch Synchronization: SyncDotLrnAccessLevel
.LRN access level (if .LRN is installed). 1 = Full access user, 0 = Limited access user (default 1, type number, scope instance)

security: MaxConsecutiveFailedLoginAttempts
Enables the tracking of consecutive failed login attempts per subsite and to slowdown brute force attacks. After reaching this threshold every further login attempt from is automatically rejected for a period of MaxConsecutiveFailedLoginAttemptsLockoutTime seconds . 0 for infinte attempts. (default 0, type number, scope instance)
security: MaxConsecutiveFailedLoginAttemptsLockoutTime
Timespan in seconds for which every login attempt is rejected after the limit set by MaxConsecutiveFailedLoginAttempts has been reached. This parameter is only in effect if MaxConsecutiveFailedLoginAttempts is greater than zero. (default 21600, type number, scope instance)
