Enforce Password History During Password Reset

By design, Active Directory does not permit password history check during password reset. However, you can enforce password history settings for password reset in ADSelfService Plus. You can enable this option and prevent users from abusing the password reset option to reuse their old password.

This is how it works:

  • After successful identity verification, ADSelfService Plus resets the user password using a randomly generated temporary password.
  • ADSelfService Plus now attempts to change the temporary password (old password) of the user account using the user provided password (new password).
  • Active Directory performs the password history check for the user provided password since it is a change password operation.
Note: To make this feature work, you need disable the user cannot change password option in Active Directory.

Here's how you can enable it:

  • Go to advanced settings of a self-service policy.
  • Click Reset & Unlock tab.
  • Select the option Enforce Active Directory password history settings during password reset.
  • You can choose whether to enable this only for password expired users.
  • Choose whether you want to hide the old password field while password reset. If you indeed choose to hide it, then ADSelfService Plus will use a temporary password to reset the password as discussed in Step 1 in the above section.
  • Click OK to save the settings.
