Post subject: BOXI Password Reset Self-Serve Utility

Author: Kalyan Tirunahari, trkalyan@gmail.com
(Thanks to Business Objects for providing the free SDK samples)

Author Notes:
Documentation is provided in the Zip file (Self-Serve Documentation.doc)

Platform:
Runs on most of the Java Application servers (Specially Tomcat 5), BOXIR2

About the code:
This is a web based application used to reset user passwords in the Business Objects XI R2 environment. Its a Self Serve, so a user can reset his own Password instead of bugging the admin for it. In case the user can’t remember his user id, he can enter his first name and Last name and the tool can search for his id based on Last/first name. The tool resets the password and sends the new password to the email address that was entered in the CMC for the user.


Features of the code:

• We reduced our Helpdesk Tickets for BO password resets to zero/month from 200/month.
• Automation of simple jobs which could save a lot of time and money
• The new password generated is sent to the email provided in the CMC for the corresponding user automatically, so it is secure and no one can steal others credentials.
• The tool doesn’t let anyone to reset the Administrator password.
• Random password generation algorithm uses Special characters.
• If the user id or the email address is not found for the specific user then it doesn’t reset the password and displays the message correspondingly.
• The flag underlying is set so the user will be prompted to change the password upon the next logon.

Kalyan,
Our XIR2 system is configured to use Windows AD.But some of our users login to the system using Enterprise authentication.I was able to change the password using Password reset utility you provided but i was not getting an email with confirmation.

Any input on this is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Karen

has anybody modified the code to also re-enabled an account after it has been disabled?

I tried the following code but did not work:

IInfoObject existingUser = (IInfoObject)users.get(0);
IUser iUser = (IUser)existingUser;
IUserAliases existingAliases = iUser.getAliases();
for (Iterator it = existingAliases.iterator(); it.hasNext(); )
{
IUserAlias sAlias = (IUserAlias)it.next() ;
System.out.println("sAlias : " + sAlias) ;
sAlias.setDisabled(true);
}

gabo
