Send a one-time password when the LDAP server is down

An LDAP property is available to send a one-time password to a user if the user is unable to log in because the LDAP server is down. You can also configure another property to control how long the password is valid.

To receive a one-time password, the user must have notifications enabled on their user profile. The notification is an email message only. SMS messages are not supported.
