Reset Candidate Password Enhancement

The Reset Candidate Password feature, which is used to reset a candidate’s My Profile password, will now validate that the new password is unique and does not duplicate a previously used password for the account.



On by default for customers that have a default password set for their portal. For production and pilot environments, this will be a phased rollout by swim lane and will follow the same rollout schedule as the Default Password Management enhancement.

This enhancement was first made available to test in stage environments with the April ’21 Release.

For stage portals that have not had a copy down since then, this enhancement may currently be available. For stage portals that have had a copy down, this enhancement will be available to test at the start of UAT. Customers that do not have a default password set for their portal will not be impacted by this enhancement.
