General Settings Overview

This section outlines the procedures required to configure general settings that apply to all created Management Policies, such as:

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 V2 and allow or prohibit account search on the Self-Service site.

Configuring Account Search Options

To configure account search options

  1. Connect to the Administration site by typing the Administration site URL in the address bar of your Web browser. By default, the URL is http://<ComputerName>/PMAdmin/.

    NOTE: When prompted to log in, provide your domain user name in a domainname\username format.

  2. On the menu bar, click General Settings, then click the Search and Logon Options tab, and configure the following options as required:

    Table 9: Search and Logon options



    Do not allow users to search for their accounts

    Select this radio button to require users to enter either their logon names. Other user account attributes can be configured to Self-Service site or HelpDesk Site to find their accounts.

    Show the domain list to allow users to select their domain

    Select this check box to allow users to see the list of managed domains registered with Password Manager on the Self-Service site. If the domain list is displayed, users will be able to select the domain their accounts belong to.

    If you do not select this option and if several domains are registered with Password Manager, users will be required to enter their logon names in one of the following formats: or MYDOMAIN\username.

    Users must enter their logon names for identification

    If there are multiple managed domains registered with Password Manager and the domain list is hidden, the user must enter the logon name in one of the following formats: username@mydomain or MYDOMAIN\username. Otherwise, the user account will not be found.

    If there is only one managed domain or the domain list is displayed, then the user is required to enter only the username (for example, user1) and select the domain from the list.

    Users must enter the following user account attribute for identification (this may slow down the performance)

    Select this option to require users to search for their accounts by using the specified attribute of user account in Active Directory. In the text box under the radio button, enter the attribute name. For example, you can use the attribute email to require users to enter their emails to search for accounts on the Self-Service site.

    Allow users to search for their accounts

    Select this radio button to allow users to perform account search by using the locate account functionality of the Self-Service site. Users can enter their first or last name, or email address to find their accounts.

    By selecting this option, you can specify the number of user accounts that are displayed in search results. To do this, specify the required number in the “Number of users to display in search results” field.

    Allow user search from external network

    Select the check box to allow user searching capabilities on Self-Service Site from an external network or unselect the check box to disable searching capabilities on Self-Service Site from an IP address not specified in the defined Corporate IP Address Ranges. For more information on specifying a defined Corporate IP Address Ranges, see Location sensitive authentication section.

    For more information on how a user search works on the external network, see Partial user search on external network section.

    If Allow user search from external network check box is unchecked and corporate range in not configured, by default, every network is treated as an External network until it is defined under Corporate IP Address Ranges.

    Hence user search behaves as though the user site is accessed from external network.

    Search in multiple domains

    Select this option to enable users to search for their accounts in all domains registered with Password Manager.

    Automatically show available self-service tasks if only one account is found

    Select this option to automatically open the Home page of the Self-Service site for the user if only one user account matching the search criteria is found.

    User account attributes to display in search results

    Select check boxes next to the user account attributes that you want users to view in search results. You can select any of the following attributes:

    • First name

    • Initials

    • Last name

    • Name

    • Full name

    • User logon name

    • E-mail

  3. Click Save.
