4.7 Testing Password Self-Service

To verify that the features are set up correctly, complete the following as part of testing Password Self-Service:

  1. Create a policy with the following characteristics. For information on how to accomplish this, see, Creating or Editing Challenge Sets.

    • Enable Forgotten Password

    • Require Challenge Set

    • Select the option to verify that the challenge response and hint are configured on login

    • Assign the password policy to a container with at least one user you can use to test with. This user is the user who has the e-mail address indicated on the User object in the Internet EMail Address attribute.

  2. Make sure you have another user to test with who does not have a password policy assigned.

  3. To test password self-service, use the Identity Manager User Application. For information on how to do this, see “Using the Identity Self-Service Tab” in the Novell Identity Manager Roles Based Provisioning Module 4.0.1 User Application User Guide.

    For Windows users, test password self-service using the Novell Client. For information on how to do this, see “Using Forgotten Password Self-Service” in the Novell Client for Windows Administration Guide.
