Using password policies

The LDAP password policy is predefined for LDAP. You can apply this password policy to LDAP user accounts passwords (LDAPAccount.UserPassword) of an LDAP domain or an LDAP container.

If the domains' or containers' password requirements differ, it is recommended that you set up your own password policies for each domain or container.

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.

The password policy that is to be used for a user account is determined in the following sequence:

  1. Password policy of the user account's account definition.

  2. Password policy of the user account's manage level.

  3. Password policy of the user account's LDAP container.

  4. Password policy of the user account's LDAP domain.

  5. The One Identity Manager password policy (default policy).

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.
