Configure Google reCAPTCHA

Google reCAPTCHA helps prevent bots from registering users or resetting passwords on your system. For Google documentation on this feature, see Google reCAPTCHA. IDM works with Google reCAPTCHA v2.

To use Google reCAPTCHA, you will need a Google account and your domain name (RFC 2606-compliant URLs such as localhost and are acceptable for test purposes). Google then provides a site key and a secret key that you can include in the self-service function configuration.

For example, you can set up reCAPTCHA by adding the following code block to the configuration file for user self-registration selfservice-registration.json, password reset, selfservice-reset.json, and forgotten username selfservice-username.json functionality.

    "name" : "captcha",
    "recaptchaSiteKey" : "< Insert Site Key Here >",
    "recaptchaSecretKey" : "< Insert Secret Key Here >",
    "recaptchaUri" : ""

You may also add the reCAPTCHA keys through the UI for each of these self-service features.
