Question:

How can the "Forgot Password", "Unlock Account" and "New Account" labels for the links used by the IDM Credential Provider be changed?  For example, how can "New Account" be changed to "Create New Account", or "Forgot Password" be changed to "Reset Password"?

Answer:

These strings can be modified in the dialogs.xml file, located by default at C:\Program Files\CA\Identity Manager\Credential Provider\dialogs.xml.  Change them to the desired values in the first section within that file.  There is a section for each language supported by the Credential Provider.  For example <lang_1033> represents US English.
