Disable challenge set for some users, enable for others

Hello,

We would like to disable the forgotten password feature of SSPR for
accounts in one OU, while leaving it enabled in another. Is this possible?

Thanks

There is an LDAP query that defines to whom the Forgot password setting
applies. You could define one for the OU that supports it.

but based on a later question I assume you do not want everyone having
to set C/R questions, not so much disabling the Forgotten Password, right?

We want to manage service account password via SSPR. These passwords are
known by a team instead of a person, so the forgotten-password feature
backed by challenge questions would be worse than useless in this context.

I turned off the forgotten password feature of SSPR, and hoped that I
could do the same for the challenge questions. Unfortunately, there
appears to be no way to prevent SSPR from asking challenge questions on
first login. The best I could do was configure the password policy to
use a special challenge question set containing only one question.
Unless I'm missing something, that will have to do.

Thanks
