Password expiry

Employee and system user based authentication modules support password expiry. The columns Person.PasswordLastSet and DialogUser.PasswordLastSet contain the time and date that the password was last changed.

There are different ways to inform employees that their password is going to expire:

  • Users are alerted about their password expiring when they log in to One Identity Manager and can change their password if necessary.
  • For employee-based authentication modules, the system sends reminder notifications in relation to expiring passwords as of seven days in advance of the password expiry date.
    • You can adjust the time in days in the Common | Authentication | DialogUserPasswordReminder configuration parameter. Edit the configuration parameter in the Designer.
    • The notifications are triggered in accordance with the Reminder system user password expires schedule and use the Employee - system user password expires mail template. You can adjust the schedule and mail template in the Designer if required.

TIP: To prevent passwords expiring for service account, for example, you can set Password never expires (DialogUser.PasswordNeverExpires) in the Designer for the affected system users.

For detailed information about the One Identity Manager authentication modules and about editing system users, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.

Displaying locked employees and system users

If a user has reached the number of maximum failed logins, the employee or system user can no longer log in to One Identity Manager.

  • Locked employees are displayed in the Manager in the Employees | Locked employees category. An additional message referring to the locked login is also displayed on the overview form for an employee.

  • Locked system users are displayed in the Designer in the Permissions | System users | Locked system users category. An additional message referring to the locked login is also displayed on the overview form for a system user.

You can reset the passwords of employees and system users who have been blocked in Password Reset Portal. For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Web Portal User Guide.

Working with change labels

Define change labels under which changes are grouped together in order to swap data between development and test databases as well as the productive database.

Change labels contain changes to individual properties of an object at a certain point in time.

IMPORTANT: Consistently book all changes to an object to the change label. It is not possible to add changes of individual properties to the change label at a later date.

In the Database Transporter program, change labels are provided as an export criterion for creating custom configuration packages. When you create a custom configuration package, single object properties are added to the transport package. The properties contain the values given at the time they were added.

You can create and edit change labels in different One Identity Manager tools. The procedure is similar in all tools. Change labels are allocated using different methods depending on the One Identity Manager tool. Changes are normally allocated before or on saving the changes in the database.
