Workflow tab (create access request policy)

In the web client, the Workflow tab is split in to three tabs that allow you to configure the requester, approver, and reviewer settings for an access request policy:

Navigate to:

  • web client: Security Policy Management > Entitlements > Access Request Policies > (create or edit a policy)
Requester tab

Use the Requester tab to specify the requester settings for an access request policy.

Table 206: Access Request Policy: Requester tab properties
Property Description
Duration of Access Approval

Enter or select the default duration (days, hours, and minutes) that the requester can access the accounts and assets governed by this policy. The access duration cannot exceed a total of 31 days (44,640 minutes).

Allow Requester to Change Duration Select this check box to allow the requester the ability to modify the access duration.
Maximum Time Requester Can Have Access

If you select the Allow Requester to Change Duration option, you can set the maximum duration (days, hours, and minutes) that the requester can access the accounts and assets governed by this policy.

The default access duration is seven days. The maximum access duration is 31 days.

The users can change the access duration, but they cannot access the accounts or assets governed by this policy for longer than the maximum access duration time.

Allow Emergency Access

Select this option to allow users to request emergency access to accounts and assets governed by this policy. Clear this option to disallow emergency access.

Emergency Access overrides the Approver requirements; that is, when a user requests access using Emergency Access, the request is immediately approved, provided that the other constraints are met, such as the Requester settings. Multiple users are allowed to request emergency access simultaneously for the same account or asset.

Ignore Time Restrictions

Select this option to ignore time restrictions when a user requests emergency access. Clear this option if you want to enforce the time restrictions set for this policy and only allow emergency access during the specified time period.

Notify When Account is Released with Emergency access | To

(Optional) When emergency access is enabled, build an escalation notification contact list, by entering an email address or selecting To to choose an email address of a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user.

You can enter email addresses for non-Safeguard for Privileged Passwords users.

To send event notifications to a user, you must configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to send alerts. For more information, see Configuring alerts.

IMPORTANT: Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not dynamically maintain the email addresses for an escalation notification contact list. If you change a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user's email address or delete a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user after creating a policy, you must update the email addresses in an escalation notification contact list manually. For more information, see User not notified.

Require Comment

Select this check box to require that a requester provide a Comment when making an access request.

Reasons

Click Add to add one or more reasons to the selected access request policy. Then, when requesting access to a password, SSH key, or a session, a user can select a predefined reason from a list. Click OK to add a reason.

NOTE: You must have reasons configured in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to use this option. For more information, see Reasons.. If you do not see the reason you are looking for, you can create a reason from the Reasons dialog by clicking the New toolbar button.

Require Reason Code

Select this option to require that a requester provide a Reason when requesting access. This option is only available if you have selected Reasons for the policy.

If you add reasons to a policy, and leave this option cleared, the users will have the option of choosing a reason; but they will not be required to select a reason.

Approver tab

Use the Approver tab to specify the approver settings for an access request policy.

Table 207: Access Request Policy: Approver tab properties
Property Description

Auto-Approved

Select this option to automatically approve all access requests for accounts and assets governed by this policy.

Notify when Account is Auto-Approved | To

(Optional) When no approvals are required, enter an email address or select To to choose a user to notify when access is auto-approved.

If you used the To button to add Safeguard for Privileged Passwords users, you can use the Clear icon to remove an individual address from this list.

NOTE: To send event notifications to a user, you must configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to send alerts. For more information, see Configuring alerts.

Approvals Required

Select this option to require approval for all access requests for accounts and assets governed by this policy. Enter the following information:

  • Qty: Enter or select the minimum number of approvals required from the selected users or user groups listed as Approvers.
  • Approvers: Browse to select one or more users or user groups who can approve access requests for accounts and assets governed by this policy.

    Click  Add an Approval Group or  Delete to add or remove approver sets.

    The order of the approver sets is not significant, but all requirements must be met; that is, a request must obtain the number of approvals from each approver set defined.

    The users you authorize as approvers receive alerts when an access request requires their approval if they have Safeguard for Privileged Passwords configured to send alerts.

    TIP: As a best practice, add user groups as approvers rather than individuals. This makes it possible to add an individual approver to a pending access request. In addition, you can modify an approvers list without editing the policy.

To

(Optional) Select this check box to enable notifications.

  • Set the amount of time (days, hours, and minutes) to wait before notifying the escalation notification contact list about pending approvals.
