Using password policies

The E-Business Suite password policy is predefined for Oracle E-Business Suite systems. You can apply this password policy to user accounts (EBSUser.Password) of an E-Business Suite system.

If the E-Business Suite systems' password requirements differ, you should set up your own password policies for each system.

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 E-Business Suite system.

  4. 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.

To reassign a password policy

  1. In the Manager, select the Oracle E-Business Suite > Basic configuration data > Password policies category.

  2. Select the password policy in the result list.
  3. Select Assign objects.
  4. Click Add in the Assignments section and enter the following data.

    • Apply to: Application scope of the password policy.

      To specify an application scope

      1. Click next to the field.

      2. Select one of the following references under Table:

        • The table that contains the base objects of synchronization.

        • To apply the password policy based on the account definition, select the TSBAccountDef table.

        • To apply the password policy based on the manage level, select the TSBBehavior table.

      3. Under Apply to, select the table that contains the base objects.

        • If you have selected the table containing the base objects of synchronization, next select the specific target system.

        • If you have selected the TSBAccountDef table, next select the specific account definition.

        • If you have selected the TSBBehavior table, next select the specific manage level.

      4. Click OK.

    • Password column: Name of the password column.

    • Password policy: Name of the password policy to use.

  5. Save the changes.

Description

Text field for additional explanation. Translate the given text using the button.

Error Message

Custom error message generated if the policy is not fulfilled. Translate the given text using the button.

Owner (Application Role)

Application roles whose members can configure the password policies.

Default policy

Mark as default policy for passwords. This option cannot be changed.

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 identities, user accounts, or system users.

Policy settings

Define the following settings for a password policy on the Password tab.

Table 21: Policy settings

Property

Meaning

Initial password

Initial password for newly created user accounts. The initial password is used if a password is not entered when you create a user account or if a random password is not generated.

Password confirmation

Reconfirm password.

Minimum Length

Minimum length of the password. Specify the number of characters a password must have. If the value is 0, no password is required.

Max. length

Maximum length of the password. Specify the number of characters a password can have. The maximum permitted value is 256.

Max. errors

Maximum number of errors. Set the number of invalid passwords attempts. The number of failed logins is only taken into account when logging in to One Identity Manager. If the value is 0, the number of failed logins is not taken into account.

This data is only taken into account if the One Identity Manager login was through a system user or identity based authentication module. If a user has exceeded the maximum number of failed logins, the identity or system user will not be able to log in to One Identity Manager.

You can use the Password Reset Portal to reset the passwords of identities and system users who have been locked. For more information, see the One Identity Manager Web Designer Web Portal User Guide.

Validity period

Maximum age of the password. Enter the length of time a password can be used before it expires. If the value is 0, then the password does not expire.

Password history

Enter the number of passwords to be saved. If, for example, a value of 5 is entered, the user's last five passwords are stored. If the value is 0, then no passwords are stored in the password history.

Minimum password strength

Specifies how secure the password must be. The higher the password strength, the more secure it is. The value 0 means that the password strength is not tested. The values 1, 2, 3 and 4 specify the required complexity of the password. The value 1 represents the lowest requirements in terms of password strength. The value 4 requires the highest level of complexity.

Name properties denied

Specifies whether name properties are permitted in the password. If this option is set, name properties are not permitted in passwords. The values of these columns are taken into account if the Contains name properties for password check option is set. In the Designer, adjust this option in the column definition. For more information, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.
