Creating an All Access Person

EmpowerID recommends that you create a Person object with the All Access Management Role and use that identity—instead of the EmpowerID Admin—when configuring EmpowerID. The All Access Management Role grants the Person with the role full administrative capabilities in EmpowerID. You create this Person in the EmpowerID Web interface.


To enroll the EmpowerID Admin for password self-service reset

  1. Navigate your Web browser to the login page for the EmpowerID Web site in your environment.
  2. Log in using the credentials you were given for the EmpowerID Admin.

    You should be directed to the Password Self-Service Reset page.




  3. Answer the questions and then click Submit to enroll for Password Self-Service Reset.

    After successfully enrolling you should be directed to the default home page for your environment.




    Next, change the password for the EmpowerID Admin by following the below steps.

To change the password for the EmpowerID Admin

  1. From the home page, click EmpowerID Admin at the top of the page and then click Change Password.




  2. In the Change Password form that appears do the following:

  3. Enter the new password in the New Password and Confirm Password fields and then click Submit.
