Issue/Introduction

IDM integrated with Siteminder/SSO

 

IM Password Policy is not showing the browse for file and upload dictionary and instead is just showing path to dictionary file.

Exporting the IME Roles XML is not showing any password policy.

Changing user password gives error the password is in dictionary even if it is not.

 

Cause

When Identity Manager is integrated with SiteMinder SSO, the dictionary files need to reside in the SSO policy store, not in the IDM Object Store.

Resolution

To apply a dictionary file, use the SiteMinder/SSO Web Admin UI password policy functionality to upload the file to the policy store. 

If you have more than one policy store in your cluster make sure you place the dictionary file on all policy stores.
