Initial password for new LDAP user accounts

You can issue an initial password for a new LDAP user account in the following ways:

  • Create user accounts manually and enter a password in their master data.

  • Assign a randomly generated initial password to enter when you create user accounts.

    • In the Designer, set the TargetSystem | LDAP | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword configuration parameter.

    • Apply target system specific password policies and define the character sets that the password must contain.

    • Specify which employee will receive the initial password by email.

  • Use the employee's central password. The employee’s central password is mapped to the user account password. For detailed information about an employee’s central password, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

Email notifications about login data

You can configure the login information for new user accounts to be sent by email to a specified person. In this case, two messages are sent with the user name and the initial password. Mail templates are used to generate the messages. The mail text in a mail template is defined in several languages. This means the recipient’s language can be taken into account when the email is generated. Mail templates are supplied in the default installation with which you can configure the notification procedure.

The following prerequisites must be fulfilled in order to use notifications:

  1. Ensure that the email notification system is configured in One Identity Manager. For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.
  2. In the Designer, set the Common | MailNotification | DefaultSender configuration parameter and enter the sender address for sending the email notifications.
  3. Ensure that all employees have a default email address. Notifications are sent to this address. For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.
  4. Ensure that a language can be determined for all employees. Only then can they receive email notifications in their own language. For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

When a randomly generated password is issued for the new user account, the initial login data for a user account is sent by email to a previously specified person.

To send initial login data by email

  1. In the Designer, set the TargetSystem | LDAP | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword configuration parameter.
  2. In the Designer, set the TargetSystem | LDAP | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword | SendTo configuration parameter and enter the recipient of the notification as a value.
  3. In the Designer, set the TargetSystem | LDAP | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword | SendTo | MailTemplateAccountName configuration parameter.

    By default, the message sent uses the Employee - new user account created mail template. The message contains the name of the user account.

  4. In the Designer, set the TargetSystem | LDAP | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword | SendTo | MailTemplatePassword configuration parameter.

    By default, the message sent uses the Employee - initial password for new user account mail template. The message contains the initial password for the user account.

TIP: To use custom mail templates for emails of this type, change the value of the configuration parameter.

Job server for LDAP-specific process handling

In order to handle -specific processes in One Identity Manager, the synchronization server and its server functions must be declared. You have several options for defining a server's functionality:

  • In the Designer, create an entry for the Job server in the Base Data | Installation | Job server category. For detailed information, see One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.

  • In the Manager, select an entry for the Job server in the LDAP | Basic configuration data | Server category and edit the Job server’s master data.

    Use this task if the Job server has already been declared in One Identity Manager and you want to configure special functions for the Job server.
