This activity has the following settings:

  • Passcode length: Specify how many characters a passcode must contain.

  • Passcode lifetime: Specify how long a passcode issued by helpdesk operators is valid.

Select the Generate Passcode and send it in SMS checkbox to send the passcode via SMS or select the Generate Passcode and send it in e-mail to send the passcode in e-mail to the user's device to authenticate on the Password Manager self-service site.

NOTE: To select Generate Passcode and send it in SMS, you must have a valid license with telephone verification. To select Generate Passcode and send it in e-mail, you must configure at least one SMTP server.
