SAP IdM - Self Service password reset

Hi All

Has anyone configured the Self-service password reset option yet?

I have a question that the documentation doesn't answer. We plan on using the IdM on our SAP landscape which would involve at least 9 seperate systems, meaning the Dev, QA and Prod systems for BW 3.5, CRM 2007 & ECC.

My question is if we have a user that has access to all these systems, but only needs to reset their password in 1 of them. How does the Self-service password reset option know which system that user's id is locked in or would it be resetting the password in every one of the systems?

    Hi Ken,

    If I understand correctly, if a user have access to BW 3.5, CRM 2007 & ECC  in PRD system,you want he  to be able to reset himself only in one of them.

    To do so, you can make separate UI task for password reset of each system.

    Just in your UI task for password reset in  tab Options (Repository) - set the correct repository for the system you want the user to be reset. This way each user will see in the UI all tree sistem for password reset(if he has the permissions to see them, if he has access in them) and will be able to choose between them.

    BR,

    Interesting question. I think it would reset the password in all the connected systems.

    As per the documentation on attribute MX_ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD :

    This is a default attribute of the MX_PERSON entry type and contains the user's encrypted

    password. The same password is used in all connected systems, so the defined password policy

    must comply with all systems

    As part of IdM RDS solution, there is an option to reset password system dependently.

    Cheers,
