OU Based Self Service Policy Configuration

Why OU based Self Service Policy Configuration?

Self Service privileges of ADSelfService Plus aim at reducing administrator workload and also improve employee efficiency. With options to Reset password, Unlock Account, Change Password and Personal Information Update, employees no longer have to depend on someone to get these tasks effected. However, not all users in a domain would need to be given similar self service permissions/restrictions. This is when the OU based Self Service Policy Configuration option comes handy.

How does it help AD Administrators?

Configuring policies for users' self service options might often be a puzzle for Active Directory administrators. Using the Policy Configuration options of ADSelfService Plus, administrators can now associate users in selective OUs with specific self service permissions. Individual OUs can now be associated with specific policy configurations within seconds. Using the Policy Configuration wizard, you can define Secret Question & Answer settings like the number of questions, the character length of answers, user defined questions,etc. Administrators can also grant permissions for users of specific OUs, to define their own secret questions.

How can I configure the Policy Settings using ADSelfService Plus?

OU based Policy Configuration for Self Service options can easily be done with ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus. The Policy Configuration Wizard of the software allows Active Directory administrators to associate users with selective permissions. Using the Policy Configuration wizard AD administrators can quickly configure:

As an administrator, you can configure the Reset Password options for users in a domain. There are two ways by which the password can be reset. The Allow Self Reset Password option allows end-users to reset their password after answering the secret questions. The Automatic Reset Password option can be enabled to automatically reset the passwords of domain users as and when they get expired.

Unlock Account

Self Unlock Account

Likewise, you can configure the Account Lockout options for users in the domain. Same as the Reset Password feature, there are two options to unlock user accounts viz, grant the self unlock account option or set an automatic account unlock. With the automatic account unlock, the ADSelfService Plus application checks for Locked out accounts on a routine basis and if this option is enabled then automatically unlocks the locked out user accounts.

Change Password

Sometimes it becomes essential to change passwords on a routine with an intention to enforce security. Users are generally notified via email to change their login passwords. Administrators can enable this option under Policy Configuration of ADSelfService Plus to grant Change Password facility to users in specific OU of Active Directory Domains.
