Dictionary feature in identity management is used by password policy component only for making a custom list of words that should not be used as password apart from the standard dictionary as per configuration. It is used to control the words that can be used as password (Disallow words found in dictionary property) in order to avoid easy cracking. This feature supports the management of words in dictionary. Administrative user can add or remove words in the dictionary from the administrative UI. The sample UI to manage the words in dictionary is shown below.
The contents section displays the custom words already added in the dictionary. Words of choice can be selected and removed from the list using the Remove button.
Words can be added to the dictionary using either of the two options below.
- Key in words in the text area. (Multiple words separated by space)
- Select the file that contains the word list. (Multiple words separated by line break)
Perform either of the above two and press Add To Dictionary button to complete the process. A message displays indicating how many words were added to the custom dictionary. A warning
message may display if one or more words already exist in the standard or custom dictionary.
