Configuring policies for users is a crucial activity for Active Directory administrators. Not all users in a domain share similar permissions/restrictions. It often becomes essential to define policies for users in smaller containers of the Active Directory. Using the Policy Configuration options of ADSelfService Plus, administrators can now associate users in domains or OUs with specific policy settings. In other words, the administrators can decide what the users self-service portal would contain while configuring policies. The Policy Configuration wizard gives options to configure:
Individual OUs can now be associated with specific policy configurations. Using the 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.
As an administrator, you can configure the Reset Password management option for users - especially useful for users who have forgotten their passwords - 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 secret questions/reproducing verification code. The Automatic Reset Password option can be enabled to automatically reset the passwords of domain users as and when they get expired, thereby reducing the helpdesk password reset tickets..

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.

Active Directory Administrators can enable the Self Update option to allow AD users to self update certain information. The Active Directory Attributes that a user can modify or update can also be configured using this option.

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. This feature allows users to configure passwords that meet the complexity standards (displayed on the change password page). 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.
