6.3 Configuring Macros for Messages and Actions

Self Service Password Reset macros provide the administrator with a powerful and flexible method to tailor some Self Service Password Reset configuration settings and messages for your users and their environment.

Self Service Password Reset macros make use of two reserved symbols: at sign @ and the colon :.

  • Each macro begins and ends with the @ symbol.

  • The : is used to separate fields in macros with multiple fields.

  • Any macro that includes a literal @ or : symbol must escape these characters with a slash /, such as /@ or /:.

To test macros:

  1. Log in to Self Service Password Reset at https://dns-name/sspr as an administrator.

  2. In the toolbar, click your name.

  3. Click Open macro help and reference in the top right corner of the Configuration Editor.

  4. Enter the macro in the Input field, then click Test.

    If the macro is correct, the Configuration Editor displays the output.

This page in the Configuration Editor contains the schema for the macros and some common examples of macros.
