Manage My Profile

The Manage My Profile workflow allows the administrator to manage user profiles in Active Directory by using the Admin site. Manage My Profile uses settings of Register workflow.

Use this workflow only if the user's Questions & Answers profile is pending for update. To configure, do the following.

  2. Click Settings.
  3. Select Run this activity only if user's profile should be updated check box.

NOTE: In case of an upgrade from 5.8.2 to 5.9.x, if the user is registered with Personal Contact Method(Mobile) in 5.8.2, then the user will be prompted to re-enter the country code as well as the mobile number, the very first-time(post-upgrade to 5.9.x) while trying to update the profile through the Manage My Profile workflow.


Forgot My Password

You can use this workflow to configure the Forgot My Password task for the Self-Service site. The Forgot My Password task allows users to reset passwords for their accounts in AD LDS and in connected data sources (if integration with One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine is configured) by using the Self-Service site. For more information on using One Identity Quick Connect Sync Engine, see Reset Password in AD LDS and Connected Systems.

IMPORTANT: To display password policies on the Self-Service site when users reset passwords, add connections to AD LDS instances on the Password Policies tab of the Administration site. For more information see Creating a Password Policy.

The default configuration of this workflow is the following:

  1. Authentication Methods
  2. Lock Q&A profile.
  3. Reset password in AD LDS.
  4. Restart workflow if error occurs.
  5. Email user if workflow succeeds.
  6. Email user if workflow fails.
