Request user password, via windows scripting driver


Hi,

From target windows server, I want to get password of provisioned
user(edirectory/IDM user password).

I can create users in target system with password. But I want to replace
password of provisioned users with IDM password at EOD. So both password
will be same.

Even if any user is changing their password in target system then
changed password will be replaced with IDM password.

is it possible from Windows Scripting driver?

Can any one help me on this?

Thanks/DEB

EOD (does that mean end of day)?

Nearly anything is possible with this driver.

Questions:

1. Are you using the publisher channel at all, do you have polling set up? Does the polling include the user's changed password on the target side?
2. Can you query the user's password on the target side via a script?
3. On the IDM side, the users have universal password enabled/ UP set?

Re: Request user password, via windows scripting driver


I am answering your questions in Blue.

1. Are you using the publisher channel at all, do you have polling set
up? Does the polling include the user's changed password on the target
side?

We are not importing any thing from target system. Operation on add or
modify via Pub Channel will be veto.





2. Can you query the user's password on the target side via a script?

I can run a script on target system to get a list of users those has
change their password in target OS. I can not get changed password of
user from windows OS. So I will replace changed password with IDM
password.

3. On the IDM side, the users have universal password enabled/ UP set?

Yes, UP is enabled on all users except admin's via policy.

Thanks and Regards

Deb

Re: Request user password, via windows scripting driver


You could use the Poll script.

Each poll:
1. If EOD, run script to get list of users whose passwords have
changed.
2. For each user:
a. use IDMQuery (VBScript) / idm_doquery (PowerShell) to retrieve
their nspmDistributionPassword attribute from IDM.
b. set the Windows password to the retrieved password.

See the Scripting Driver Documentation for details on IDMQuery /
idm_doquery.
