Customization of Password Policies List

When a user changes or resets password on the Self-Service site, the password policy rules specified for the user's domain can be displayed on the page where the user is required to enter a new password.

To modify the list of password policy rules displayed on the Self-Service site, edit the rules specified for the domain on the Password Policies tab of the Administration site.

For more information, see Configuring Password Policy Rules.

Customization of Password Strength Meter

You can customize the Password strength meter on the Helpdesk site and Self-Service site.

To enable Password strength meter:

  • In the web.config file, set the value of PasswordStrengthMeterEnable to true as follows:

      <add key="PasswordStrengthMeterEnable" value="true"/>

    To disable Password strength meter, set the value of PasswordStrengthMeterEnable to false.

    You can customize the text displaying the strength of the Password strength meter.

    To customize the text:

To set display name as user name:

  • In the web.config file, set the value of DisplayName to true as follows:
    <add key="DisplayName" value="true"/>

    To set display name as sAMAccountName:

  • In the web.config file, set the value of DisplayName to false as follows:

Feature imparities between the legacy and the new Self-Service Sites

Password Manager does not provide feature parity between the legacy Self-Service Site (PMUser) and new Self-Service Site (PMSelfService) for self-service related activities. All new feature developments are for the new Self-Service Site (PMSelfService) site only.

The following new features are affected:

  • Password Manager Secure Token Server: The Authenticate with external provider action cannot be used on the legacy Self-Service Site (PMUser).
