About the Tool

This Java console application checks users in an LDAP directory and sends notification e-mail messages when their password is about to expire. The application is scheduled to run nightly. Only those users whose passwords will be expiring in a specified number of days will be notified.

A configuration XML document defines the LDAP connection information, the day intervals for notification, and the e-mail message templates for each interval. For example, users whose passwords will be expiring in 30 days may receive a different e-mail message than those whose passwords expire tomorrow. The e-mail messages are designed to be readable in both HTML and text-only views.

The tool is a great complement to the password features in Nsure Identity Manager. For example, the e-mail notification can direct the user to the self-service interface to change the password. Identity Manager then synchronizes the new password to all connected systems.
