Use the controls and tabbed pages on the Partitions page to perform the following tasks to manage partitions:
It is the responsibility of the Asset Administrator to add partitions to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. When you assign an asset to a partition, all the accounts associated with that asset are assigned to that partition, as well.
Name: Enter a unique name for the partition.
Limit: 50 characters
Description: (Optional) Enter information about this partition.
Limit: 255 characters
You can use the Clear icon to remove an individual delegated owner from this list or right-click and select Remove All to clear all of the delegated owners from the list.
By default, an Asset Administrator can manage all partitions; however, you can delegate partition management to a user with no administrator permissions.
When you create a new partition, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords creates a corresponding default profile with default schedules and rules.
Use the Assets tab on the Partitions view to add one or more assets to a partition.
If you do not see the asset you are looking for, depending on your Administrator permissions, you can create it in the selection dialog. (You must have Asset Administrator permissions to create assets.)
Note: You can only assign an asset to one partition at a time. When you assign an asset to a partition, all accounts associated with that asset are automatically reassigned to that partition, as well. Then, any new accounts you add for that asset are automatically assigned to that partition.
To create a new asset from the Asset selection dialog
You cannot remove assets from a partition. However, you can add them to another partition either from the scope of the other partition or from an asset's General properties. For more information, see Adding assets to a partition.
When you add an asset to a partition, all the accounts associated with that asset that are not explicitly assigned to another partition, are also added to the scope of that partition.
