Restrict allowed information in employee Self Service page

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • On Premises
  • SecureAuth IdP Version Affected:  All

    Description:  As an admin, you want to be able to limit the type of information that can be submitted via the employee Self Service page.  For example, you want to prevent users from using certain domains for their email address.

    Special Considerations:  How to formulate regex is outside the scope of this document, and we highly encourage admins to read up on how regex works and test each filter out before applying to a production environment.
