Initial Password for New User Accounts

Table 20: Configuration parameters for formatting initial passwords for user accounts
Configuration parameter Meaning

QER\Person\UseCentralPassword

This configuration parameter specifies whether the employee's central password is used in the user accounts. The employee’s central password is automatically mapped to the employee’s user account in all permitted target systems. This excludes privileged user accounts, which are not updated.

QER\Person\UseCentralPassword\PermanentStore

This configuration parameter controls the storage period for central passwords. If the parameter is set, the employee’s central password is permanently stored. If the parameter is not set, the central password is only to publicize the target system and is subsequently deleted from the One Identity Manager database.

TargetSystem\CSM\Accounts\InitialRandomPassword

This configuration parameter specifies whether a random generated password is issued when a new user account is added. The password must contain at least those character sets that are defined in the password policy.

You have the following possible options for issuing an initial password for a new user account.

  • 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.

    • Enable the TargetSystem | CSM | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword configuration parameter in Designer.

    • 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.

  • User 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 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 is defined in several languages in a mail template. which 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 detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.
  2. In Designer, enable 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, activate the configuration parameter TargetSystem | CSM | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword.
  2. In the Designer, activate the configuration parameter TargetSystem | CSM | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword | SendTo and enter the recipient of the notification as a value.
  3. In the Designer, activate the configuration parameter TargetSystem | CSM | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword | SendTo | MailTemplateAccountName.

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

  4. In the Designer, activate the configuration parameter TargetSystem | CSM | Accounts | InitialRandomPassword | SendTo | MailTemplatePassword.

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

TIP: Change the value of the configuration parameter in order to use custom mail templates for these mails.

Target system managers

A default application role exists for the target system manager in One Identity Manager. Assign the employees who are authorized to edit all cloud target system in One Identity Manager to this application role.

Define additional application roles if you want to limit the edit permissions for target system managers to individual cloud target systems. The application roles must be added under the default application role.

For detailed information about implementing and editing application roles, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.

Implementing application roles for target system managers
  1. The One Identity Manager administrator assigns employees to be target system managers.

  2. These target system managers add employees to the default application role for target system managers.

    Target system managers with the default application role are authorized to edit all cloud target systems in One Identity Manager.

  3. Target system managers can authorize other employees within their area of responsibility as target system managers and if necessary, create additional child application roles and assign these to individual cloud target systems.

  • Create, change or delete target system objects, like user accounts or groups.

  • Edit password policies for the target system.

  • Prepare groups for adding to the IT Shop.

  • Can create employees with an identity that differs from the Primary identity.

  • Configure synchronization in the Synchronization Editor and defines the mapping for comparing target systems and One Identity Manager.

  • Edit the synchronization's target system types and outstanding objects.

  • Authorize other employees within their area of responsibility as target system managers and create child application roles if required.

Editing a Server

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

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

  • Select an entry for the Job server in Cloud Target Systems | Basic configuration data | Server in the Manager and edit the Job server 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.

NOTE: One Identity Manager must be installed, configured, and started in order for a server to execute its function in the One Identity Manager Service network. Proceed as described in the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.

To edit a Job server and its functions

  1. Select Cloud target systems | Basic configuration data | Server in Manager.

  2. Select the Job server entry in the result list.

  3. Select Change master data.

  4. Edit the Job server's master data.

  5. Select Assign server functions in the task view and specify server functionality.
