Password change restriction

hi,

System handle is SD 4.5 SP20 on windows platform with sp1.

We want service page account users to change the password as and when they login into service page first time itself.

Request your guidance on this.

Regards,

Re: Password change restriction

Hi,

thats not native with OVSD directly. You might be able to script something.

Anyway the password sent is very un-user friendly which may encourage some users to change it.

Sorry I don't have an actual answer other that that right now.

Re: Password change restriction

Hi

Would recommend creating a custom JSP that goes into the email link that forces them to change their password. There is nothing "out of the box" that will do this but the JSP's are easy to understand if you have had exposure to Java / C / C++ / Javascript so should hopefully be easy to create.

Re: Password change restriction

Hi,

There is some kind of workarround available if you are familiar with Scripting and DB queries.

You can implement the logic in "timezone / language" page while logging in.

Create a table XX in Database with one column say "LOGIN_NAME".

Everytime user tries to login, Check the entry in the table. If the entry is not available then invoke the password change page otherwise contine with main menu page.

After the password change make an entry in the table XX.

But this involves some kind of work.
