You can use the customization tool in a standalone mode i.e. run the tool on a computer on which Password Manager is not installed. When you use the tool in a standalone mode, you need to load data from and save it to a specified file.
When you use the customization tool in a connected mode, you can load data from and upload it directly to Password Manager's configuration as well as load data from a file and save it to the file.
If you want to make the modifications on a server other than the Password Manager server, you still need to install the customization tool on the Password Manager server for two reasons:
The customization tool is distributed as a ZIP archive. To launch the tool, extract all files supplied in the archive to a single folder and run the QPM.CustomizationTool.exe file.
Note: Before modifying any configuration data with the customization tool, it is strongly recommended to export Password Manager's configuration to a file using the Import/Export Settings option on the Administration site to create a backup of the configuration.
To start using the tool, load data to the tool. To load data directly from Password Manager's configuration, click Load data from product configuration on the main page. To load data from a file previously saved with this tool, click Load data from file on the main page, select the required file and click Open.
