8.6 Creation - Set Default Password

During the creation of user objects, this rule sets a default password for user objects. Implement the rule on the Creation policy in the driver. You can implement the rule on either the Subscriber or the Publisher channel or on both channels.

There are two steps involved in using the predefined rules: creating a policy in the Creation policy set and importing the predefined rule. If you already have a Creation policy that you want to add this rule to, skip to Importing the Predefined Rule.

8.6.1 Creating a Policy

  1. From the Outline view or the Policy Flow view, select the Publisher or Subscriber channel.

  2. Select the Creation policy set in the Policy Set view, then click Create or add a new policy to the Policy Set icon Create or Add a New Policy icon to create a new policy.

  3. Click Create a new policy, then click Next.

  4. Name the policy.

  5. Use the default location or browse and select another location to place the policy in the driver.

8.6.3 How the Rule Works

This rule is used when you want User objects to be created with a default password. During the creation of a User object, the password that is set for the User object is the Given Name attribute plus the Surname attribute of the User object.

You can change the value of the default password by editing the argument. You can set the password to any other value you want through the Argument Builder.
