User administrators generate temporary passwords as they create new local accounts for new users in the Password Generation screen.

User administrators can also reset and assign temporary passwords for existing users who forget their passwords. Upon successful authentication, the users are required to change their passwords immediately.

If you are using an alternative console authentication for the administrative console or the administrative API, password management is handled by the third-party system.

  1. Go to the System > Administrative Accounts screen.
  2. Optional: Select the Notify Administrator of Account Change check box if you want PingFederate to generate a notification message for the administrator whose password is about to be set or reset.
  3. Click Reset Password under Action for the applicable account.
  4. On the Password Generation screen, enter a password or click Generate one-time password to generate a random password for the account, and then click Save.
