Password Reset Regex RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has anyone else run into this scenario?  I have implemented SSPR with PCNS to sync passwords from AD to other downstream systems.  This works like a charm but we have run into occasional problems where special characters that are accepted by the AD password policy, and validated by the FIM password reset portal, throw errors at the target system when invoked by PCNS into FIM Sync.

    We won't be able to modify the AD password policy to stop users from including the problem special characters.  One thought is to put a regex on the main password reset portal page and just handle this in the UI.  I did not see anything about this in the MS password portal customization document.

    Before I go to far down this road, I wanted to see how others have handled this.

    Thanks,

    Scott

  • Never tried this before - are you able to get to the reset pages to edit the code? I would guess a lot of these are pre-compiled pages with little room for customization (similar to the FIM portal pages)

  • I did look at the default.aspx page in the reset folder and I see a couple of areas where this may be possible.  Does anyone know if changing default.aspx and site.aspx is supported my Microsoft?

  • AFAIK its not, the only SSPR customizations supported are mostly UI based

    Worth a shot I think if you can find a way to change it in default.aspx

  • Not supported.  Best you can do is enforce the system(s) to have the same password policies/accept same characters.
