Accessing IDM Password Reset questions from AM portal


When a user logs into the AM portal from a new location, I would like to
present a challenge question to the user to verify identity. It would be
preferrable to use one of the password reset challenge questions I
already have in the vault. Is there any way to access those questions
such as through a straight LDAP call to eDirectory?

Define AM portal. You mean the IDP portal? Or you mean a normal login
to a protected resource.

You'll have to build something custom for this. Definitely can't do
this out of the box with NAM itself.

Re: Accessing IDM Password Reset questions from AM portal


I THINK, but I could be wrong, that you can do this (or at least that's
how it was originally documented back in 3.0 or something)

1) You have to use the IDM UserApp (again, this is from docs awhile
ago)

2) There was a cool solutions setup (or maybe in the NAM 3.0 docs
itself) that had you put the "expired password" URL to the UserApp, BUT
they had you using the "forgotpassword/challengeresponse.jsf" page or
something

That would force the user to use their NMAS challenge response
questions and then change their password

We, however, didn't like that, so I wrote a cool solutions to take you
to the changepassword.jsf or something instead

But I THINK (if you're using UserApp) you can just tell it to go to the
forgotten password page instead

Oh, this also assumes that you're using NMAS and you are using
Challenge/Response and setup Forgotten Password policy (you can either
do challenge/response or email the password I believe)
