Is it possible to leave the "User must change password at next logon" checkbox unchecked by default?

I see options to set the other properties but not this one.

Hello,

What operation are you trying to configure? When should this happen?

On the Create User screen, in the Account section the "User must change password at next logon" checkbox is checked by default.

Can this checkbox be unchecked by default?

Hello,

No, currently this is impossible.

Hello,

We discussed this with our team and decided that we'll implement the required functionality by the next release. Starting from the next release, you will be able to select whether to enable the User must change password at next logon option for new users by default.

Has this been implemented in 2014.1? If so how?

Found it...

I can get it to uncheck but if I hide that field in the UI it re-checks it when the user is created...

Hello Chad,

The issue occurs because of how the User must change password at next logon option is implemented in Active Directory. A user is forced to change password at next logon if the Password Last Set property is set 0 or Unspecified value, and the Password never expires option is not enabled. When users are created in Active Directory, their Password Last Set property is set to the Unspecified value by default, and if you don't check the Password never expires option, users will be forced to change their passwords at first logon.

You can work around this with the help of a Property Pattern. Property Patterns allow you to specify a default value for a property. If you create a Property Pattern that disables the User must change password at next logon option for new users, the option will be disabled for all new users affected by this Property Pattern. For information on how to create a Property Pattern that sets default values for Account Options, see the following tutorial: http://adaxes.com/tutorials_Simplifying ... gUsers.htm. You can use it as a guide. On step 5, specify a value with the User must change password at next logon option unchecked.
