Telephone Verification Feature License

Password Manager requires a separate license for telephone verification feature that allows users to authenticate themselves via one-time PINs received as text messages or through automated voice calls. For more information about this feature, see Phone-Based Authentication Service Overview.

You can install this license during Password Manager installation or provide the license file later on the Administration site. To install the license after Password Manager installation, see the above procedure “Updating the License”.

You must specify a separate scope of users for telephone verification service. Only users included in the scope will have access to the service.

License violation occurs in the following cases

  • The actual number of users exceeds the maximum licensed number for the telephone verification service. In this case, users will not be able to authenticate via phone if you do not decrease the number of user accounts set in the scope or do not update the license.

  • The license for the telephone verification service expired. In this case, you will have a grace period of 30 days during which the telephone verification service is available. Once the grace period has expired, users will not be able to authenticate via phone, but, other authentication mechanisms such as Q&A, are not affected by expiry/non-compliance of this Telephone Verification license.

Configuring Password Manager Service Account and Application Pool Identity

When installing Password Manager, you are prompted to specify two accounts: Password Manager Service account and application pool identity. Password Manager Service account is an account under which Password Manager Service runs.

You can also use the Password Manager Service account to connect to an AD LDS instance when configuring user and helpdesk scopes. To do this, ensure that Password Manager Service account has the required minimum permissions. For more information, see Configuring Permissions for Access Account.

Application pool identity is an account under which the application pool's worker process runs. The account you specify as the application pool identity will be used to run Password Manager Web sites.

For Password Manager to run successfully, the accounts you specify when installing Password Manager must meet the following requirements:

  • Password Manager Service account must be a member of the Administrators group on the Web server where Password Manager is installed.

  • Application pool identity account must be a member of the IIS_IUSRS local group on the Web server in IIS 7.0 and must have permissions to create files in the <Password Manager installation folder>\App_Data folder.
  • Application pool identity account must the full control permission set for the following registry keys: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\One Identity\Password Manager for AD LDS.
  • If the App pool account is a domain user with minimal permission, make sure that the <PM for ADLDS installation folder>\Web folder must be provided with full control permission set for Application pool identity account.

Before you install Password Manager, make sure that the Password Manager Service account and application pool identity have the rights listed above.
