Authenticate with RADIUS Two-Factor Authentication

Use this activity to configure Password Manager to use a RADIUS server for two-factor authentication.

It uses one-time passwords (OTP) generated by hardware or software tokens for authentication.

You can use RADIUS Two-Factor Authentication to authenticate users before allowing them to reset or change their passwords, to unlock accounts, or manage Questions and Answers profiles.

Before using RADIUS Two-Factor Authentication for authentication, users have to configure it in General Settings tab on the home page of the Administration site. For more information, see RADIUS Two-Factor Authentication .

Authenticate via Phone

Authenticate via Phone

Use this activity to include phone-based authentication in a self-service workflow. If your license includes phone-based authentication service, you will be able to configure and use this activity.

If your Password Manager license does not include phone-based authentication service and you want to use this service, please access the Support Portal at https://support.oneidentity.com/.

Before enabling phone-based authentication, make sure that users’ phone numbers stored in AD LDS are in a correct format. The phone number must meet the following requirements:

  • The number starts with either 00 or + followed by a country code and subscriber’s number. For example, +1 555-789-1314 or 00 1 5554567890.
  • The number can have extensions. For example, the number +1 555 123-45-67 ext 890.
  • Digits within the number can be separated by a space, hyphen, comma, period, plus and minus signs, slash (/), backward slash (\), asterisk (*), hash (#), and a tab character.
  • The number can contain the following brackets: parentheses (), curly braces {}, square brackets [], and angle brackets <>. Only one set of brackets is allowed within the number. The opening bracket must be in the first half of the number. For example, the number +15551234(567) will be considered invalid.

The USA numbers may not start with 00 or + sign, if they comply with all other requirements and contain 11 digits. For example, the number 1-555-123-3245 will be considered valid.

This activity has the following settings:

  • Authentication method. You can specify whether you want users to receive a call or an SMS with a one-time PIN code by selecting the corresponding option. You can also allow users to choose the authentication method on the Self-Service site by selecting the Allow users to choose between an automated voice call and SMS option.
  • SMS template. Enter the text message that will contain a one-time PIN code and will be sent to users during phone-based authentication.
  • telephoneNumber, homePhone, mobile and other attributes. Select one or several attributes of a user account from which telephone numbers will be used during phone-based authentication. You can also specify other attributes.

You can test the configured settings by clicking the Test settings button and entering the phone number to which a one-time PIN code will be sent.

Authenticate with Passcode

Authenticate with Passcode

Use this activity to allow users to use passcode for creating or updating Questions and Answers profile. Passcodes are assigned by helpdesk operators to users who have forgotten their passwords and at the same are not registered with Password Manager or have forgotten their answers to secret questions.

You do not need to configure any settings for this activity.

By default, this authentication activity is used in the I Have a Passcode workflow.

For more information on configuring settings for assigning passcodes, see Assign Passcode.
