Customization of URLs to Self-Service Site from Other Applications

You can create special URLs that direct a specified user to beginning of a specified task when accessing the Self-Service site from other applications.

The URL must be in the following format:


Where <parameters> is a list of names and values, i.e. name1=value1&name2=value2.

COMPUTER_NAME is the DNS name or IP address of the server where Password Manager resides.

You can use the following parameters:

  • The Integratedparameter specifies whether the integrated mode is on.
  • The dcname parameter specifies a domain controller’s name or IP address.
  • The PortalHomePage parameter specifies an URL for the Home page link on the Self-Service site.
  • The CurrentLanguage is the identifier of the preferred user interface language: a two-letter lowercase culture code with or without a two-letter uppercase subculture code. This parameter is optional. If the specified language is not available, the user interface will be displayed in the default language. The default language is either English or any other language selected by the user on the Self-Service site from the list of available languages.
  • The IdentificationDomain is the fully qualified name of the domain to which a user belongs.
  • The IdentificationAccount is the name of a user. If user account search is enabled on the Self-Service site, you should specify a part of the user’s first or last name or email. For example:


If user account search is disabled on the Self-Service site, you should specify the user’s sAMAccountName or UPN name. For example:


  • The IdentificationAccountId is the GUID of a user account.
  • The WorkflowId and WorkflowShortName parameters identify a workflow. You can view the workflow identifier and name on the Administration site when the troubleshooting mode is on. For more information see Extensibility Features Overview.
