We have configured Self Service so users can reset or change their passwords.
But we disallow access to the account unlock feature through the Password Self-Service Policy settings.
How can I change the SelfPasswordReset page to eleminate the words "or unlock a locked out user account" ?

Update 2018

Starting with version 2018.1 UI texts can be updated in the Web interface configurator. For details, have a look at the following help article: https://www.adaxes.com/help/ChangeUITexts.

Original

Hello,

You can do this by modifying the Web Interface source files as follows:

  1. Open the folder that contains the Web Interface site that you want to configure. By default, Adaxes Web Interface sites are installed to the following folders:
    Administrators:
    C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Web Interface\Admin\
    Help Desk:
    C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Web Interface\HelpDesk\
    Self-Service:
    C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Web Interface\SelfService\

  2. Open subfolder App_GlobalResources.

  3. Locate file PasswordSelfServiceStrings.resx and open it in any text editor.

  4. Find the data XML element that has the name attribute set to SelfPasswordResetWizardDescription

     <data name="SelfPasswordResetWizardDescription" xml:space="preserve">
       <value>This wizard allows you to reset a forgotten password or unlock a locked out user account.<br>
     Please enter your user name and click Next.</value>
     </data>
    
  5. Change the text in the value element to whatever you need, for example:

     <data name="SelfPasswordResetWizardDescription" xml:space="preserve">
       <value>With the help of this wizard you can reset your password.<br>
     Please enter your user name and click Next.</value>
     </data>
    
  6. Save the file.

Please remember that these changes will not be backed up by Web Interface backup / restore. Thus, you will need to perform the changes each time you upgrade or reinstall Adaxes.

Is there a way to combine the two functions for Unlock, and Password Reset? Most of the time, users lock themselves out because they don't remember the password, so the HelpDesk ... for the user, then changing the password. Is there any other way to do this?
