It is the responsibility of the Asset Administrator to add assets and accounts to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.
Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to set up asset discovery jobs that run automatically. For more information, see Asset discovery job workflow.
Before you add systems to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, make sure they are properly configured. For more information, see Preparing systems for management.
Where you add general information about the asset.
Where you add the network address, operating system and version information.
|Connection tab||Where you add the authentication type information or custom platform properties.|
Use the General tab to specify general information about the asset, including the partition and profile to which the asset is assigned. An asset can only be in one partition at a time. When you add an asset to a partition, all accounts associated with that asset are automatically added to that partition. All assets must be governed by a profile. All new assets are automatically governed by the default profile unless otherwise specified.
Enter a unique display name for the asset.

(Optional) Enter information about this managed system.
Limit: 255 characters
Browse to select a partition for this asset. You can set a specific partition as the default, see Setting a default partition.
Browse to select a profile to manage this asset's accounts.
You must assign all assets to a profile. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords assigns all new assets to the default profile unless you specify another. You can set a specific profile as the default. For more information, see Setting a default partition profile.
Click Reset to set the profile to the current default.
The Reset button only becomes active when the asset has been explicitly assigned to the profile. If the asset is only implicitly assigned to the profile, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not activate the Reset button. If you do not explicitly assign an asset to a profile, it is always assigned to the current default profile.
Use the Administrative Tools | Assets | Management tab to add the network address, operating system and version information for an asset:
Select an operating system for this asset. A custom platform can be selected. For more information, see Custom Platforms.
Select the operating system version. When adding a Linux or Macintosh OS X system, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to choose an "Other" version.
When applicable, select the operating system architecture.
Enter a network DNS name or the IP address used to connect to the managed system over the network.
For Amazon Web Services assets, enter the Amazon AWS Account ID or Alias.
Click to display settings specific to the custom platform.

If the Product field on the Management tab identified a custom platform, complete the dialog based on the custom properties of the custom platform script. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords checks to ensure the values match the type of the property which include: a string, boolean, integer, or password (which is called secret in the API scripts). Safeguard for Privileged Passwords cannot check the validity or system impact of values entered for custom platforms. For more information, see Creating a custom platform script.
