Adding users or user groups to an asset

When you add users to an asset, you are specifying the users or user groups that have ownership of an asset.

It is the responsibility of the Asset Administrator (or delegated partition owner) to add users or user groups to assets. The Security Policy Administrator only has permission to add groups, not users. For more information, see Administrator permissions.

To add users to an account

  1. Navigate to Asset Management > Assets.
  2. In Assets, select an asset from the object list and click View Details.
  3. Open the Owners tab.
  4. Click  Add.
  5. Select one or more users or user groups from the list in the Select users and groups dialog.
  6. Click Select Owners to save your selection.

Deleting an asset

The Asset Administrator can delete an asset even if there are active access requests.

IMPORTANT: When you delete an asset, you also permanently delete all the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords accounts associated with the asset.

To delete an asset

  1. Navigate to Asset Management > Asset.
  2. Select the asset to be deleted.
  3. Click Delete.
  4. Confirm your request.

Click Schedule to control the job schedule.

Select Run Every to run the job along per the run details you enter. (If you clear Run Every, the schedule details are lost.)

  • Select a time frame:

    • Never: The job will not run according to a set schedule. You can still manually run the job.
    • Minutes: The job runs per the frequency of minutes you specify. For example, Run Every 30/Minutes runs the job every half hour over a 24-hour period. It is recommended you do not use the frequency of minutes except in unusual situations, such as testing.
    • Hours: The job runs per the minute setting you specify. For example, if it is 9 a.m. and you want to run the job every two hours at 15 minutes past the hour starting at 9:15 a.m., select Run Every 2/Hours/@ minutes after the hour 15.

    • Days: The job runs on the frequency of days and the time you enter.

      For example, Run Every 2/Days/Starting @ 11:59:00 PM runs the job every other evening just before midnight.

    • Weeks The job runs per the frequency of weeks at the time and on the days you specify.

      For example, Run Every 2/Weeks/Starting @ 5:00:00 AM and Repeat on these days with MON, WED, FRI selected runs the job every other week at 5 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

    • Months: The job runs on the frequency of months at the time and on the day you specify.

      For example, If you select Run Every 2/Months/Starting @ 1:00:00 AM along with Day of Week of Month/First/Saturday, the job will run at 1 a.m. on the first Saturday of every other month.

  • Select Use Time Windows if you want to enter the Start and End time. You can click Add or Remove to control multiple time restrictions. Each time window must be at least one minute apart and not overlap.

    For example, for a job to run every ten minutes every day from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., enter these values:

    Enter Run Every 10/Minutes and set Use Time Windows:

    • Start 10:00:00 PM and End 11:59:00 PM
    • Start 12:00:00 AM and End 2:00:00 AM

      An entry of Start 10:00:00 PM and End 2:00:00 AM will result in an error as the end time must be after the start time.

    If you have selected Days, Weeks, or Months, you will be able to select the number of times for the job to Repeat in the time window you enter.

    For a job to run two times every other day at 10:30 am between the hours of 4 a.m. and 8 p.m., enter these values:

    For days, enter Run Every 2/Days and set Use Time Windows as Start 4:00:00 AM and End 8:00:00 PM and Repeat 2.

If the scheduler is unable to complete a task within the scheduled interval, when it finishes execution of the task, it is rescheduled for the next immediate interval.
