Password Policies

One Identity Manager provides you with support for creating complex password policies, for example, for system user passwords, the employees' central password as well as passwords for individual target systems. Password polices apply not only when the user enters a password but also when random passwords are generated.

Predefined password policies are supplied with the default installation that you can user or customize if required. You can also define your own password policies.

Detailed information about this topic

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 "SAP R/3 password policy" is predefined for SAP R/3. You can apply this password policy to SAP user accounts (SAPUser.Password) of an SAP client.

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