Search and Logon Options

By configuring the search and logon options you specify how users and helpdesk operators search for their accounts and log in on the Self-Service and Helpdesk sites.

You can also configure Password Manager to display CAPTCHA or reCAPTCHA images and allow or prohibit account search on the Self-Service site.

Configuring Search Options for the Self-Service Site

You can use the General Settings > Search and Logon Options tab of the Password Manager for AD LDS Administration Site to configure the following account search and security options:

Table 11: Search and Logon options



Do not allow users to search for their accounts

When selected, users must either select the applicable directory partition to log in, or must specify an additional user account attribute (for example, their email address) when logging in either to the Self-Service Site or the Helpdesk Site.

  • Show the list of application directory partitions to allow users to select the partition for logging in: When selected, the Self-Service Site will show all application directory partitions registered to Password Manager for AD LDS, allowing users to select the application directory partition their accounts belongs to.

    NOTE: The list will display all aliases that the user specified in their partition connections.

  • Users must enter the following user account attribute for identification (this may slow down the performance): When selected, users must search for their accounts by using the specified AD LDS user account attribute. Use the text boxes under this setting to specify the attribute (for example, the email address) that users must enter on the Find User page of the Self-Service site to search for their user account.

Allow users to search for their accounts

When selected, users can search for their accounts by simply providing their first name, last name, or account email address.

  • Allow user search from external network: When selected, users can search their account on the Self-Service site also from an external network.

    TIP: Clear this setting to restrict searches only to IP addresses specified in the corporate IP address range of your organization, and to increase security. For more information on defining corporate IP address ranges, see Location sensitive authentication.

    For more information on user search in an external network, see Partial user search on external network.

    NOTE: If the Allow user search from external network setting is cleared, but no corporate IP address range is specified in the organization, every network from which a user search is performed will be treated by Password Manager for AD LDS as an external network.

  • Search in multiple application directory partitions: When selected, users can search for their accounts in all application directory partitions registered with Password Manager for AD LDS.

  • Number of users to display in search results: Specifies the number of user accounts (between 1 and 99) displayed in the search results.

  • Automatically show available self-service tasks if only one account is found: When selected, Password Manager for AD LDS automatically opens the Home page of the Self-Service site for the user if only one user account is found that matches the search criteria.

  • User account attributes to display in search results: Allows you to specify the user attributes (such as first name, last name, user logon name, email address) to display in the search results.
