The Directory Server provides a user management utility, the manage-account tool, that provides a means to quickly view and manipulate a number of password and account policy properties for a user or group of users.

Note: A disabled account status (for example, account-is-disabled: true) is different from an account lockout due to password policy. Unlocking a user account can be done with the manage-account tool. A disabled account requires the administrator to enable the account; password resets are not involved.

PingDirectory Server also hosts the Self Service Account Manager project at, which is a customizable web application allowing users to perform their own account registration, profile updates, and password changes. The project is for testing and development purposes, and is not a supported PingDirectory Server application.
