Unfortunately the check-box, when checked as true, does not work in CA IdM R12.5 🙁

Fortunately, we located a workaround for this by inserting the following Javascript into the checkbox field on the screen attached to the reset password task:

function init(FieldContext) {
FieldContext.setValue(“true”); }

Also fortunate, CA support is aware of the issue and a fix should be included in an upcoming service pack.
