Change password refresh timeout for Admin accounts

I'm on a SASS V. 21.2.0.9 (2102) and I've created an Admin account role that allows access to the API - Read Only for one of our vendors to query the system's API. The problem is that I have to update the password for this account once a month and I need it to be less intrusive than that as the account is used in a script by the partner vendor. I can't for the life of me find a setting in the console to change the default password refresh time. 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

The setting should be in "console security" under groups and settings, but I don't think you can change it in a shared SaaS installation.
I would recommend that you use certificate or a directory account for the API access in this case.

Thanks for the info. I'll look into creating a directory account for this. Much appreciated.

Maybe too late, but you can now also easily use oAuth for the API and choose which role you want to affect.
No password expiration and nothing related to the AD or any others informations of the enterprise.

Hope this help
