Language settings in One Identity Manager

The default One Identity Manager installation is supplied in the languages English - United States [en-US] and German - Germany [de-DE]. You can add other languages to the user interface and display text if required. In this instance, you must translate the text before One Identity Manager goes live. There is a Language Editor in the Designer to help you do this. A special control is provided in the One Identity Manager tools that aids multi-language input.

One Identity Manager default language

Maintenance of default data takes place in the default language. The default language for an installation of One Identity Manager is English - United States [en-US]. The default language is valid across the system. It is not recommended to change the default language during working hours.

The ideal case is when the One Identity Manager language matches the user’s administration tool login language. If these two settings are different, then the default language is used if no captions are found in the requested login language for a set of language-dependent data.

User login language

The language used in the user interface is the same as the language used when logging into the administration tools. When you log in the first time, the system language is used for displaying the user interface. Users can change their login language in the program settings in all administration tools. This sets the language globally for all the tools that the user uses. Therefore the user does not have to set the login language in every tool separately. Changes to the login language take effect after the tool has been restarted.

Any language for which the Select in front-end option is activated can be used as a login language.

Password expiration

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 7 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 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.

Checking authentication

The system runs validity checks to prevent users from working with established connections, if they were deactivated after they logged in.

The check takes place when the next permissions based action on the connection at a fixed interval of 20 minutes.

TIP: You can adjust the interval using the Common | Authentication | CheckInterval configuration parameter. Edit the configuration parameter in the Designer.
