Self-Service Policy Configuration:

Configure Identity Verification Info and its depth

* Determine how users of this policy should authenticate themselves while requesting for password self-service.
Eg: Whether user should answer Security question, or enter verification code, or do both to establish identity.


* Decide the depth of users’ authentication info
Eg: Configure details such as the number of questions a user should answer, length of the answer, etc.


For More Details: Click on Identity Verification

Note: This setting will be applied uniformly to the entire domain or OU as covered by the self-service policy. You can set separate Identity Verification settings for every self-service policy you create.


Password Reset Modality:

ADSelfService Plus offers 3 modes.

Configure AD Self Update portal:

If you had enabled “Self Update” for a domain or OU, then it would do good to choose a layout through which users can update their information. If you don’t choose, the default layout would be assigned.

Configuring a "Self Update" layout

Why a customized layout is better than the default? What is the advantage of a customized layout?

The layout that we provide is very basic. On the other hand, when you customize it, you have the full potential to make the user update directory info just as you desired! For more details follow the link Configuring Self Update Layout
