password reset functionality without user management RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Maybe a silly question, but if you don't ask (and can't find the answer elsewhere)...

    We will be looking at replacing our home-grown identity management with MIM. We also need a new password reset self-service function for our Active Directory users. Replacing our identity management system will take us some time. If we get MIM now, can we do the self-service password reset first? I imagine not, but I need an informed opinion, rather than my guesswork.

  • You would just need to import the users' domain, accountName and objectSID attributes from AD into the Metaverse and out to the MIM Portal (see here) and then configure as per this. This way the users are in MIM but MIM isn't managing their provisioning, deprovisioning or AD attributes; it's just importing and storing the information necessary to enable password reset functionality. 

    Later you can plan to develop MIM to manage your users provisioning/deprovisioning/AD attributes however you want without interrupting SSPR.
