User Defined Security Questions

Is there a current ability or future planned ability to allow users to
specify their own challenge question and answer in addition to the
pre-defined challenge questions? I thought I had heard there was an
option for this but don't see it in the options or documentation.

Re: User Defined Security Questions

Yes, you can define a user supplied question. If your using SSPR v3.2,
in the configured editor, go to Policies -> Challenge Sets -> Random (or
Required) Questions and edit the defined questions. Click the button
that says 'Admin Defined' and it will switch to 'User Defined'. If your
questions are defined by eDirectory policies, you can use iManager to
edit your challenge set policy and SSPR will consume the policy from
eDirectory and use user defined questions if they are configured that
way in iManager.
