Unity Password Expiration Notification

When the Days until Password Expires is set in Unity, is the user notified a number of days before that their pw is about to expire? Are there options within Unity the user may be notified that their pw is going to expire soon? Does the Unity API allow me to extract the expiration date for a user in order to notify them? Specifically, I have a customer wanting a custom application allowing them to change their Unity password and CCM E/M password through an IP Phone Service but they want the user to be notified through the Phone that their Password is soon to expire and then prompt them to change it. I can use AXL and Unity API to change the password, but the problem is notification of password expiring. Do you have any ideas on how I could accomplish this request. Thanks

Re: Unity Password Expiration Notification

yes, SubscriberInformationDump has an option to kick out both the time the PW was last changed and the number of days till the next change.

If you'd like to get this yourself, just pull the PWTimeChanged value from the vw_Subscriber view for the user in question, subtract that from today's date and compare it with the vw_PWPolicy table's MaxPasswordDays value. That'll tell you how many days in advance you have before it'll expire.
