Reduce user downtime and increase helpdesk efficiency with Forgotten Password Functionality
for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne from Beoley Mill Software Ltd.


From personal banking and online purchasing to social media accounts, passwords are needed for a plethora of online activities. Almost all of these services have a self-service password-reset functionality so that if a password is forgotten, it can be retrieved almost instantly.

This option is also now available for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, but many companies are reluctant to implement the service, even though help desk and systems administrators spend a great deal of time resetting account passwords.Forrester Research estimates that the average cost of a single password reset done by help desk is about $70, while Gartner estimates that 20% to 50% of all help desk calls are for password resets. IT can be relieved from these calls, therefore being more productive in other areas, and also reducing costs.


How it works


Once installed the words “Forgotten Password” will feature on the main EnterpriseOne login screen. If a password reset is required then the user clicks on the “Forgotten Password” link. The User will then type in their User ID and will get a response to let them know that the password request has been submitted and to check their e-mail. The new password is randomly generated based on the systems password policy, and the User can enter these details in to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. To set up a User to receive password replacements then they must be associated with an address book number for the environment defined in the setup file and an e-mail address must be setup.


The Benefits


Typically a call is logged with the IT Helpdesk and there is a wait until the password is reset - time that could be spent on other important projects. Users can have passwords reset without the need to raise a call with the IT Helpdesk. Forgotten Password saves both time and money – reducing end-user downtime and increasing helpdesk efficiency.
