Symmetry Rule

The symmetry rule ensures that password or its part does not read the same in both directions.

To configure the symmetry rule

  1. Follow the steps outlined in Configuring Password Policy Rules.
  2. On the Policy Rules tab, click Symmetry Rule to expand the rule settings.
  3. Under Symmetry Rule, select the Password must comply with symmetry criteria check box, and then specify the following options:
Table 24:

Select to define this rule as case sensitive.

Custom Rule

You can use this rule to create your own password policy message to be displayed on the Self-Service site when users change or reset their passwords. For example, use this rule to enter the settings of the local or domain password policy applied to the server on which AD LDS is running.

If you want to hide all other policy messages and display your custom message to users, enable this policy rule, enter the message text, and select the Hide messages from other policy rules and display only this message check box. If you do not select this check box, messages from all enabled policy rules will be displayed.

Note, that this rule does not check the password compliance with the configured password policy. Configure this rule to display your custom message instead of or together with other policy messages when users change or reset passwords on the Self-Service site.

To configure the custom rule

  1. Follow the steps outlined in Configuring Password Policy Rules.
  2. On the Policy Rules tab, click Custom Rule to expand the rule settings.
  3. Under Custom Rule, select the Enable check box to enable this rule.
  4. Select the Hide messages from other policy rules and display only this message check box if you want users to see only the custom password rule message and hide all other password policy messages.
  5. In the text box, enter the rule message in the default language (English). To enter the message in other languages, click the Add new language link, select the language, specify the message and click OK. Note, that only languages of the user interface of the Self-Service site are available in the list.

Deleting a Password Policy

To delete a password policy

  1. On the home page of the Administration site, click the Password Policies tab.
  2. Click the <N> One Identity Password Policies link under the AD LDS instance that you want to manage.
  3. Click Remove under the policy that you want to delete.

    NOTE: When you delete a password policy, the deleted policy is no longer valid for an AD LDS instance. To restore a deleted password policy, create a new policy and manually configure its settings as required.
