How to Configure Automatically Unlock User Job with Password Policies in OIM R2 PS3? (Doc ID 2264030.1)

Last updated on MAY 09, 2017

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version 11.1.2.3.170117 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When integrated with OAM or OAAM, the users are automatically locked after a number of failed attempts.
So, how is OIM 11.1.2.3.x (R2 PS3) to be configured, so that the Automatically Unlock User Job works as expected.

In the old reference note "Automatic Locking and Unlocking of the Users in OAM Integrated OIM Environment (Doc ID 1496808.1)" it mentions that Lock Duration is used for R2PS3.
- XL.UnlockAfter system parameter no longer exists in PS3.

The Lock Duration refers to the Password Policies that are part of the OIM Identity UI >> Manage >> Policies >> Password Policies.

By default any Password policy including Default Policy are set to Permanent Lockout, which disables the Unlock Job.
- The user can only be unlocked by Admin Users manually when Permanent Lockout is set.
