password of a user created from UI

Hello everyone,

1. I have a simple question: how do I get the password of a user created via the UI? Does the user not initially have a password to connect to Saviynt (to request access, for example)? The L100 self-paced training says that the password is generated randomly based on the password policies, but I can't see where it's stored in the database or how I can access it. The only way I found is to reset it from the admin function, but this is not useful when you have too many users.

2. When I have a CSV file that contains information about users for a disconnected application, and I have a column that contains passwords that I want to assign to each user (because I can't find the initially generated random password for each user created in the first question), how can I do this assignment?

The password I'm talking about is the password to connect to Saviynt, not to an application.

Regards,

Hi @saviynt2 

The password is stored in a encypted format in the database so you cannot retrieve it in plain text. 

2. You can use a simple csv file to upload the user with username and the password column, wont this serve the purpose to use to login for the users?

Hi @saviynt2 ,

The initially generated password is not retrievable from the database. 

You can create passwords using the create user request page as is mentioned in the below link:

Solved: New User Password - Saviynt Forums - 2427

For notifying users, you'll need to create a User scope password policy but it again involved resetting the passwords via admin function.

For setting local passwords in bulk (from the disconnected app metadata), can you try uploading a csv file containing the username and password fields, and make sure that on the upload, uncheck the "Expire Password for New User"

  • Whenever user is created password is stored in password column of users which can't be retrieved from data analyzer as confidential information.
  • You can use rest api to reset user's password to default and send communication.
