Applies to:

Oracle OpenSSO - Version 8.0 to 8.0.2 [Release 8.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


OpenSSO allow us to configure a Password reset service. This is we allow users to reset their passwords after answering some of the questions an OpenSSO administrator has established.

When the user answer correctly the questions  the new password is generated and emailed to the user.

If nothing else is done apart from configuring the Password reset service as Chapter 13 of the OpenSSO guide instruct us users won't receive any email and will see the following errors in our OpenSSO logs:
