The registration methods depend on what the administrator has enabled for Self-Service site. For the first time users, the “Register” workflow shall be enabled and the “Manage My Profile” workflow shall be disabled until they register. The users can select one of the following methods.

After the user sets a value for any of the available authentication methods either through Register or Manage My Profile workflow, a (green) color icon is displayed against the specific registration method. If the (red) color icon is displayed against any registration method, it indicates that the user has not used that registration method or set any value in Active Directory.
Creating and Updating Your Questions and Answers Profile
Creating and Updating User Profile
To register with Password Manager, you need to create a user profile. A user profile is a series of security questions (Q&A), corporate mobile number and email address, and personal contact details to which you specify the appropriate information. Later, this information is used to authenticate users when using the Self-Service site to reset your forgotten passwords or unlock your account. When you create or update your user profile, ensure that nobody knows the correct answers to the Q&A profile questions. However, the registration methods depend on what the administrator has enabled for Self-Service site.
To create or update your user profile
- Connect to the Self-Service site by using the procedure outlined in Connecting to Self-Service Site.
- On the Home page, click the Register or Manage My Profile link.
- Follow the steps in the wizard to complete the task.
