Configure Password Reset


In this tutorial, you will learn how to configure password reset in Adaxes Web Interface. You can, for example, specify how to generate the initial password, which Account Options will be selected by default, whether it will be possible to unlock user accounts, etc.

  1. Open Adaxes Web Interface Configurator.

    • On a computer, where Web Interface Configurator is installed, open the Start menu.
    • On the Start menu, select Adaxes Web Interface Configurator.


    The permissions to configure the Web Interface are delegated via Security Roles. By default, only Service Administrators have the appropriate rights. To enable other users to configure the Web Interface, grant them the corresponding permissions.

    • In Adaxes Administration Console, right-click your Adaxes service, point to New and click Security Role.
    • Enter a name for the new Security Role and click Next.
    • On the Permissions page, click the arrow inside the Add button and select Configure Web Interface.
    • Click Next and follow the steps in the wizard.
  2. In the top left corner, select the Web Interface you want to customize.

  3. In the left navigation menu, click Management.

  4. In the Operations section, select Reset password.

  5. Activate the Configuration tab and customize the operation.

    Specify a password to be used as default. If you want the password to be based on properties of the user whose password is reset, use value references (e.g. %department%, %employeeID%). Value references will be replaced with the corresponding property values of the user account.

    Alternatively, you can generate a random password. For example, %adm-RandomString,12% can be used to set the default password to a random string of the length of 12 characters.

    Select the Read-only option to disable the password field. In this case, it will not be possible to change the default password.

    • Generate

      Allows generating a random password that meets complexity requirements of the password policy assigned to the user.

    • Spell Out

      Allows viewing the new password spelled out using the phonetic alphabet.

    • View Password Policy

      Allows viewing the password policy assigned to the user.

    • Select Unlock Account to allow unlocking accounts when resetting passwords.
    • Select Send SMS verification code to allow verifying a user's identity with the help of an SMS code.

      You need to configure SMS settings for Adaxes service to be able to send SMS messages.

      To configure SMS settings, right-click your Adaxes service in Adaxes Administration Console, click Properties in the context menu, and activate the SMS Settings tab.

  6. Optionally, you can place a custom message on the Reset Password dialog.

    • Activate the Custom Message tab.
    • Check the Display custom message checkbox.
    • Specify the message text in the edit box below.

  7. Click Save.

    The settings in a section can be applied to other Web Interface types. For this purpose, in the top right corner of the section, click the down arrow button and choose Apply to other Web Interfaces.

Reset Password from Actions Pane


In Adaxes Web Interface, the Reset Password operation can also be available from the Actions pane.

The settings described in this tutorial are applied by default to all Reset Password operations in the Web Interface. However, you can configure each operation available in the Actions pane separately.

For more details, see Configure Actions Pane.
