Security Question & Answer is one of the multi-factor authentication methods supported by ADSelfService Plus. In this method, you can configure security questions, such as “What are the last 5 digits of your secondary mobile number?” and “What is the middle name of your favorite artist?,” for which the end users have to enter their answers. Apart from such predefined security questions, you can also configure your own custom questions.
However, if you have set the product language to one of the non-English languages supported by ADSelfService Plus, and if you want to add a custom security question, which contains special characters, you may sometimes get an error. In such cases, you can manually edit the Application Resource file in the installation directory of ADSelfService Plus and add the question.
To add your own custom security question in a non-English language:
