Solution to automatically reset password for shared accounts


Whether the scenario requires manual or automated check out and check in, it is important to make sure that the password is frequently changed. Depending on the sensitivity of the privileged id the password may need to be changed after every check in or periodically.

The IBM Security Privileged Identity Manager provides configuration options to change the password upon check in, or change the password manually when desired. There is no configuration option to change/reset the password periodically for the credential where password change is not expected on every check in.

This solution provides a custom means to overcome this limitation. This solution makes use of IBM Security Identity Manager 6.0 life cycle rule based solution and custom extensions. A custom extension to resetPassword automatically is developed as part of this solution.
