Authentication Activities

This section describes built-in activities that provide different authentication options.

Display CAPTCHA

Use this activity to display a CAPTCHA image on the Self-Service site and require users to enter the displayed characters before beginning a workflow. This feature provides enhanced protection against automated attacks.

This activity has the following settings:

  • Number of characters. Specify the number of characters that will be displayed on a CAPTCHA image.
  • Noise level. Select the noise level for a CAPTCHA image. The higher the level the more difficult it will be to read the characters.

Display reCAPTCHA

Use this activity to display a reCAPTCHA image on the Self-Service site and require users to enter the displayed characters before beginning a workflow. This feature provides enhanced protection against automated attacks.

reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service provided by Google.

To start using reCAPTCHA you need to sign up and get reCAPTCHA keys on the following Web site: http://www.google.com/recaptcha.

When getting the keys, provide the DNS name of the domain where Password Manager Self-Service sites are installed. If the Self-Service sites are installed in different domains, select the Enable this key on all domains check box to create a global key.

To learn more about using and configuring reCAPTCHA, go to http://www.google.com/recaptcha/learnmore.

This activity has the following settings:

  • Public key. Specify the public key you received when configuring reCAPTCHA.
  • Private key. Specify the private key you received when configuring reCAPTCHA.
  • Theme. Select a color theme for the reCAPTCHA widget.

Authenticate with Password

Use this activity to authenticate users by their passwords when running a workflow.

This activity has the following settings:

  • Authenticate users with expired passwords. Select this check box to grant access to the Self-Service site to users who are required to change their passwords at next logon. If you clear this check box, users will be denied any access to Password Manager functionality when their passwords are expired or should be changed at next logon.
  • Authenticate users with disabled accounts. If you select this check box, Password Manager will allow users whose accounts are disabled to unlock and re-enable their accounts, reset and manage passwords by using their Q&A profiles.
