iRules LX for APM password reset


We are attempting to use APM as a Self-Service Password Reset resolution.

I can modify Active Directory attributes than to this article , however, has anyone used iRules LX to reset a password.

I'll validate the user first with other methods but want to reset a forgotten password rather than the APM built-in Kerberos API reset with the current password to update to a new one.





Hi, If this question is still relevant I have an incomplete code, but the password reset works, this should get you started in your devolpment.

If you are intrested i'll can get back at you and post the final product once done!


Please note that this is currently in development and validation should occur in irule before sending data to the workspace
