Self Service Password Management
Managing AD user passwords across multiple platforms
In a large IT environment, users will have accounts on different platforms other than Microsoft Windows. To keep the login process simple, they all have the same usernames and passwords. This makes it easier for the end users, who have to remember only one password to gain access to all the systems. But it also makes it difficult for the administrators, because when the password is changed in one system, it has to be replicated across all the other systems.
Managing users passwords in a large environment is a herculean task to say the least. Add to that the task of managing password and account changes across multiple systems and it becomes extremely difficult. A user cannot afford to have different passwords for the different systems they have access to. Hence, the solution lies in synchronizing password/account changes across multiple systems.
ADSelfService Plus Password Synchronizer
ADSelfService Plus's 'Password Synchronizer' does exactly that - synchronize password/account changes across multiple systems. When a user makes changes to his Windows Active Directory password/account using ADSelfService Plus, the changes are automatically reflected in other systems too. This way, users will only have one password to remember for all the systems they have access to, and you can ensure that password changes are made in accordance with the organization policy without any glitches.
ADSelfService Plus supports Windows Active Directory password synchronization across the following systems:
Automatically Sync AD User Passwords across mutliple platforms
ADSelfService Plus captures all the self-service password/account changes and synchronizes the same across multiple-platforms that are configured with the program. When a user performs a successful self-service operation like Reset Password/Change Password using ADSelfService Plus, Password Synchronizer begins to search for the user in other systems configured for password synchronization. If the user id gets a hit on the other systems as well, then Password Synchronizer performs a password reset on those systems, with the new Windows Active Directory password set by the user using ADSelfService Plus. The only requirement is that the username in other systems need to be the same as in Windows Active Directory.
Configuring other platform systems is a breeze, with only minimal information is required from your side. Once done, ADSelfService Plus will automatically synchronize password/account changes with the configured systems.
