One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords 2.11 - User Guide

Launching an RDP session

Once an RDP session request becomes available, the requester can launch the remote desktop connection to start the session. This is applicable for both the web client and desktop client user interfaces.

To launch a remote desktop connection to begin your RDP session and close the session

  1. If the User Supplied option is selected in the policy, you will be prompted to enter your user credentials. After entering the requested credentials, click Apply. This will retrieve the information (for example, Username Connection String) required to launch the remote desktop session.
  2. Click the Launch button to the right of the asset name. Clicking this button displays the Remote Desktop Connection dialog. Click Connect to launch the remote desktop session.

    NOTE: If the required information is not populated in the Remote Desktop Connection dialog, use the following buttons to copy and paste the information into the dialog:

    1. Use the buttons to the right of the Username Connection String to perform the following tasks:

      • View: To view the username connection string.
      • Copy: To copy the value to your copy buffer, which can then be pasted into the Username field of the Remote Desktop Connection dialog.
      • Help: To copy the value into the Username field of the Remote Desktop Connection dialog.
    2. Use the buttons to the right of the Password to perform the following tasks:

      • View: To view the password.
      • Copy: To copy the password to your copy buffer, which can then be pasted into the Password field of the Remote Desktop Connection dialog.
      • Help: To copy the value into the Password field of the Remote Desktop Connection dialog.

      NOTE: The Password field only appears if the Include password release with session requests option (Access Config tab) is selected in the entitlement's access request policy.

  3. In the remote desktop session, run the commands or programs on the target host.

    NOTE: If there is no activity in an open session for about 10 minutes, the session will be terminated. However, as long as the request is in an Available state, you can launch the session again to resume your tasks.

  4. Once you are completed, log out of the target host and select Check in to complete the session request process.

    This makes the session request available to reviewers. If the Record Sessions option is enabled in the policy, the reviewer can play back the recording as part of the review process. In addition, if the Enable Window Title Detection option is selected in the policy, the reviewer can view a list of the windows opened on the desktop during the session.

Reviewing a session request

The Security Policy Administrator can configure an access request policy to require a review of completed session requests for assets or accounts in the scope of the policy.

Note: You can configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to notify you of an access request that requires your review. For more information, see Configuring alerts.
