    Hi Yasmin, 

    I had the same question sometime back.. See the comments below:

    Option1 : See the attached doc, look at the section CredentialsEmailSent.

    METADATA|User|PersonNumber|CredentialsEmailSent
    MERGE|User|12312|N

    If you change the CredentialsEmailSent to N you can run the bulk process Send username and password notification again 

    Option 2: Create an SR and provide them the query, they will do for you.

        Thanks for comment Adbul. I Suspended user and ran LDAP Process , later i was not able to login as that user.  To log back in i had to reset his password manually in Security Console and make him active.

      Hi Abdul,

      Can you send the HCM Loader template and a sample of what you ran previously to reset users?

      Hi,

      I am wondering if using the data loader, we can set the passwords for a subset of people to a specific value (i.e. Welcome123) and not send out the notification.  I don't see a field on the data loader for passwords. This solution seems to only work if SSO is not used and passwords are stored in Fusion.

      We have to commonly reset many passwords when doing UAT on preproduction instances so we can log in as that specific user.  We use SSO on Prod, but have enabled non-SSO on Test.

      If not, is there some other functionality that we can use to reset passwords, in mass, for user accounts?

       

      Thanks in advance for  your time.
