Predefined password policies

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

Password for logging in to One Identity Manager

The One Identity Manager password policy is applied for logging in to One Identity Manager. This password policy defines the settings for the system user passwords (DialogUser.Password and Person.DialogUserPassword) as well as the passcode for a one time log in on the Web Portal (Person.Passcode).

NOTE: The One Identity Manager password policy is marked as the default policy. This password policy is applied if no other password policy can be found for employees, user accounts, or system users.

For detailed information about password policies for employees, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

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 Employee central password policy defines the settings for the (Person.CentralPassword) central password. Members of the Identity Management | Employees | Administrators application role can adjust this password policy.

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

For detailed information about password policies for employees, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

Password policies for user accounts

Predefined password policies are provided, which you can apply to the user account password columns of the user accounts.

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

There is no password policy predefined for custom target systems. Create your own password policy and apply it to the custom target system user accounts (UNSAccountB.UserPassword).

It is recommended that you set up your own password policy for every custom target system. You can also assign password policies at container level.

Furthermore, you can apply password policies based on the account definition of the user accounts or based on the manage level of the user accounts.
