Password Reset - Enforce History is not working on a Web Service realm

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • On Premises
  • SecureAuth IdP Versions Affected: 9.0+

    Description: After configuring a Password Reset realm with the Enforce History option, testing shows that password history is not being enforced

    Cause: This happens when using a Web Service connection on the Data Tab instead of a direct AD connection. The Password Reset settings from the Web Service realm is used instead of the current realm.


    1. Open the SecureAuth Admin Console

    2. Navigate to the Password Reset realm

    3. Click on the Post Auth tab

    4. Click Configure Password Reset Page

    5. Now, click on the Web Service realm. This will take you into the Password Reset settings but for the Web Service realm. 

    6. Configure the required settings and click save.
