Once CA IdentityMinder verifies a user’s identity in the Forgotten Password task, it performs one of the following actions:

To configure CA IdentityMinder to display or email a temporary password, use the Forgotten Password task instead of the Forgotten Password Reset task.

The Forgotten Password task is associated with a business logic task handler, a Java object that forms custom business logic, which generates a temporary password.

To configure the Forgotten Password task to email the temporary password:

  4. On the Profile tab, click Business Logic Task Handlers.

  6. In the Property field, click the minus icon to delete the ShowPwdOnScreen property.
  7. In the Property field, type in ShowPwdOnScreen again.
  8. In the Value field, enter:


  9. Click Add.
