Predefined Password Policies

You can customize predefined password policies to meet your own requirements, if necessary.

Password for logging into One Identity Manager

The password policy "One Identity Manager password policy" is used for logging into One Identity Manager. This password policy defined the settings for the system user passwords (DialogUser.Password and Person.DialogUserPassword) as well as the access code for a one off log in on the Web Portal (Person.Passcode).

The password policy "One Identity Manager password policy" is also labeled as the default and is used when no other password policy is found.

Password policy for forming employees' central passwords

An employee's central password is formed from the target system specific user accounts by respective configuration. The password policy "Employee central password policy" defines the settings for the central password (Person.CentralPassword).

IMPORTANT: Ensure that the password policy "Employee central password policy" does not violate the target system specific password requirements.

Password policies for target systems

A predefined password that you can apply to the user account password columns, is provided for every target system.

NOTE: When you update One Identity Manager version 7.x to One Identity Manager version 8.0, the configuration parameter settings for forming passwords are passed on to the target system specific password policies.

IMPORTANT: If you are not working with target system specific password policies, the default policy applies. In this case, ensure that the password policy "One Identity Manager password policy" does not violate the target system requirements.

The password policy "Azure Active Directory password policy" is predefined for Azure Active Directory. You can apply this password policy to Azure Active Directory user accounts (AADUser.Password) of an Azure Active Directory tenant.

If the tenants' password requirements differ, it is recommended that you set up your own password policies for each tenant.
