This section describes how to assign a new credential policy and new default credentials to a credential group. At installation, the system assigns a default credential policy to the credential groups.
Upgrades from 5.x releases automatically migrate application and end user passwords and PINs.
Before You Begin
To assign a default credential policy other than the predefined Default Credentials Policy, you must first create the policy.
The Find and List Find and List Credential Policy Defaults window displays.
||Click the list item to change. |
The Credential Policy Default Configuration window displays with the current settings.
||Enter the appropriate settings, as described in Table 1, using these guidelines:|
- To change the applied credential policy, select the policy from the drop-down list box.
- To change the default credential, enter and confirm the new credential in the appropriate fields.
- To change credential requirements, check or uncheck the appropriate check boxes.
||Click the Save button or the Save icon.|
What to Do Next
You can assign a new user credential policy, manage user authentication events, view credential information for a user, or configure a unique password for the user.
The Bulk Administration Tool (BAT) allows administrators to define common credential parameters, such as passwords and PINs, for a group of users in the BAT User Template. See the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration Guide for more information.
End users can change PINs at the phone user pages; end users can change passwords at the phone user pages when LDAP authentication is not enabled. See the documentation for your Cisco Unified IP Phone for more information.
