Learn about user enrollment in Password Manager, a simple, secure, self-service solution from One Identity that enables your organization to implement stronger password policies while reducing its help desk workload.
In order for a user to use Password Manager and be able to reset their password on their own, they need to set it up. By default, we can set it so that when they log into their computer, they're asked if they want to set it up now.
Right now, I've got it set on the Force mode, so it's really sitting right in front. They really have to do it right then or be reminded later. Let's go ahead and go through that process, and you can see what it's like.
You'll notice here that it's telling me right at the top, Hey, I need to create my profile. So let's go ahead and do that.
It's asking me for my password to validate that I'm the right person. And now it says, Great. Let's go through and answer these questions.
You'll notice this particular question, I can pick from a list. And you can configure how all these work, and how many of which you have, and that sort of thing.
And here you can create your own. And I'll just create something stupid because this is just for a lab.
Here are Help Desk questions. We'll talk more about that at another point.
And great. Now I've configured Password Manager. And you can see that if I go back to the Home page here, that now the Forgot My Password link is there when normally it would be.
One thing you may have noticed here is that this is all being done through a web page. You can expose this web page to the internet if you want or need to so that people can reset their passwords without being on your corporate network. We can also lock it down if they're sitting in that scenario in order to make sure that there's no security issues.
