Configuring the Google reCAPTCHA Plugin

The user self-service feature supports the Google reCAPTCHA plugin, which can be placed on the Register Your Account, Reset Your Password, and Retrieve Your Username pages. The Google reCAPTCHA plugin protects your user self-service implementation from software bots.

Google reCAPTCHA is the only supported plugin for user self-service. Any other Captcha service will require a custom plugin.

Note

To allow AM to contact internet services through a proxy, see "Settings for Configuring a JVM Proxy".

To Configure the Google reCAPTCHA Plugin
  1. Register your web site at a Captcha provider, such as Google reCAPTCHA, to get your site and secret key.

    When you register your site for Google reCAPTCHA, you only need to obtain the site and secret key, which you enter in the User Self-Service configuration page in the AM console. You do not have to do anything with client-side integration and server-side integration. The Google reCAPTCHA plugin appears automatically on the Register Your Account, Reset Your Password, and Retrieve Your Username pages after you configure it in the AM console.
