Subject [jira] [Updated] (DIRSERVER-1928) PasswordPolicy should be ignored from Admin session
Date Sat, 07 Dec 2013 15:25:35 GMT


lucas theisen updated DIRSERVER-1928:

    Attachment: DIRSERVER-1928.diff

The attached patch is against 
git-svn-id: 13f79535-47bb-0310-9956-ffa450edef68
It allows for administrator to skip policy checks during add/modify including when using PwdModifyRequest.
 An added test case to the unit tests verifies this behavior.

an authenticated session with admin privileges should avoid password policy checks.  For example,
a user might change his password and forget it soon thereafter.  At which point he would contact
an administrator and ask to have it reset again.  If an ads-pwdMinAge is set longer than the
elapsed time, even the administrator is unable to fix the problem (short of modifying the
pwdChangedTime by hand before making the request).  Other LDAP implementations like Active
Directory do this, and operating systems like windows and unix do this...  Would it not make
sense to do the same here?
