Administrators can optionally enable notifications for account management events. If enabled, PingFederate generates notification messages based on the following events.

See the following table for a description of an event and the corresponding alert.

Event Alert
An administrator turns off the Notify Administrator of Account Changes option. PingFederate generates a notification message to all administrators.

The message includes the username of the administrator who made the change.

An administrator's email address is updated by another administrator. PingFederate generates a notification message to the previous email address and another notification to the new email address.

The message includes the username of the administrator who made the change.

An administrator's password is changed. PingFederate generates a notification to the administrator whose password has been changed.

The message includes the username of the administrator who made the change.

Note:

Account management events are only applicable when native authentication is enabled for the administrative console, the administrative API, or both in the <pf_install>/pingfederate/bin/run.properties file. If you are using an alternative console authentication, notifications, if any, such as password changes, are handled by the third-party system.

  1. Go to System > Serverto open the Administrative Accounts window.
  2. Select the Notify Administrator of Account Change check box.

    An email address must be provided for the applicable accounts.

  3. Select a notification publisher instance from the list.

    If you have not yet configured the desired notification publisher instance, click Manage Notification Publishers.

  4. To keep your configuration, click Save.
