User Access Manager (UAM) – for HCL Connections


Manage HCL Connections Users

How do you want a user to sign in for the first time? What options do you want to provide for a user to retrieve a lost password? How can a user change a password? Are there certain codes of conduct you want a user to accept in order to use your services? Our User Access Manager (UAM) helps you managing these tasks.

Our User Access Manager (UAM) for HCL Connections simplifies the access management for external guests and internal users.

Workflow Features
  • Invite External / Guest Users
  • External Users can Register for Access
  • Manage ‘Terms of Use’ Acceptance (for Internal and External Users)
  • Approval Workflow for (Internal and External) Access Requests
  • Terminate Access for Individual Users
  • Change Password (with defined strength)
  • Recovery / Reset Password
  • HCL Connections Registration

    After accepting a code of conduct by your definition a user can register to HCL Connections to obtain access to your system automatically. Via Lotus Notes Client you can revise your defined code of conduct, make edits, add or delete. It is easy and quick to do as our application supports full Rich Text Format (RTF) for your convenience.

    For users the application is entirely accessible via web browser. Solely, configuration is set per Lotus Notes Client. The module is completely internationalized. English and German languages are implemented by default. Additional languages can be added effortlessly.

  • Change Password Option

    This feature allows users to change their password by themselves corresponding to company guidelines regarding its strength, e.g. specifications on length or special characters. The validation of all input is processed in the browser as well as on the server. The new password can be used immediately after the changes.

  • Password Recovery Option

    In case of a forgotten password users can reorder a new one using their user name. This generates an email to the user’s inbox including a link for a password reset. The link can only be used once and expires after a set time. When entering a new password this way all password validations are taken in consideration as well.
