Password release request workflow
One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords provides secure control of administrative accounts by storing account passwords until they are needed, and releases them only to authorized persons. Then, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords automatically updates the account passwords based on configurable parameters.
Typically, a password release request follows this workflow.
- Request: Users that are designated as an authorized user of an entitlement can request passwords for any account in the scope of that entitlement's policies.
- Approve: Depending on how the Security Policy Administrator configured the policy, a password release request will either require approval by one or more Safeguard for Privileged Passwords users, or be auto-approved. This process ensures the security of account passwords, provides accountability, and provides dual control over the system accounts.
- Review: The Security Policy Administrator can optionally configure an access request policy to require a review of completed password release requests for accounts in the scope of the policy.
The following topics explain the entire end-to-end password release process from request to approval to review.
