PingFederate provides various self-service applications for end users to manage their accounts. These optional capabilities lower the costs of identity management, freeing administrators from round-the-clock service requests to change passwords, reset passwords, unlock accounts, and recover usernames. Designed for ease of deployment, these capabilities are integrated into the HTML Form Adapter. Administrators can easily enable some or all capabilities with a few configuration changes on a per-adapter basis. Like other user-facing screens, the user-facing templates can be customized and localized to provide the desired user experience.

Refer to subsequent topics for configuration steps.


Similarly, when configuring customer identity and access management use cases, administrators can enable the end users to manage their local account, connect or disconnect one or more social connections, and change or set the password for their local account.
