Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Business Administrator's Guide

ProcedureTo Enable User Accounts on a Resource Through Password Resets

User account enabling reverses the disabling process.

Depending on selected notification options, Identity Manager also displays the password on the administrator’s results page.

The user can then reset his password (through the authentication process), or a user with administrator privileges can reset it.

Note –

If an assigned resource does not have native support for account enabling, but does support password changes, then Identity Manager can be configured to enable user accounts on that resource through password resets.

To ensure that this functionality works correctly, do the following:

  1. Open the “Identity System Parameters” page in the Edit Resource Wizard. (See Managing Resources for instructions on how to open the wizard.)

  2. In the “Account Features Configuration” table, verify that both the Password feature and the Enable feature do not have check marks in the Disable? column. (To display the Enable feature, select Show All Features.)

    If the Enable feature does have a check mark in the Disable? column, accounts in the resource cannot be enabled.

Enabling Single User Accounts

To enable a user account, select it in the list, and then select Enable from the User Actions list.

On the displayed Enable page, select the resources to enable, and then click OK. Identity Manager displays the results of enabling the Identity Manager account and all associated resource accounts.

Enabling Multiple User Accounts

You can enable two or more Identity Manager user accounts at the same time. Select more than one user account in the list, and then select Enable from the User Actions list.

Note –

When you choose to enable multiple user accounts, you cannot select individually assigned resource accounts from each user account. Rather, this process enables all resources on all user accounts you select.
