Sun Identity Manager Deployment Reference


A resource can be assigned a password policy. If an attribute has an assigned password policy, the value of this attribute will contain information about it.

The following table defines the attributes in the accountInfo.accounts[resname].passwordPolicy.

Table 3–12 accountInfo.accounts[resname].passwordPolicy Attributes (User VIew)




The name of policy. This corresponds to the name of a policy object in the Identity Manager repository. 


A brief text description of the policy including information about each of the policy attributes. 


The value of this attribute is another object that contains the names and values of each policy attribute. 

Applications that display policy information typically display the summary text, but if you need more fine-grained control over the display of each policy attribute, you can use the attributes map.

Forms that provide an interface for changing and synchronizing passwords often use this information.
