8.2 Oracle Identity Manager Password Management through Connectors

Oracle Identity Manager provides centralized password management for enterprise applications, a feature that you can leverage by provisioning through its connectors. In this way, you can configure a centralized password policy for the enterprise, allowing your users to specify a single password which can then be provisioned to the various targets where passwords are required.

Password reset, password change, and expiration can all be handled through Oracle Identity Manager's self-service support.

See Chapter 6, "User, Account, and Entitlement Provisioning" for more information on supported connectors.

8.3 Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite ESSO-PR for Password Reset

Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-on Password Reset (ESSO-PR) allows users to access their Windows user accounts in case they lose or forget their password, without requiring help desk or technical support, improving the operational efficiency of the enterprise.

For details, see the Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-on documentation library at:
