One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to set up asset discovery jobs to run automatically against the directories or network (IP range) you have added to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. For more information, see Asset discovery job workflow.

When an asset discovery job runs, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords adds the assets it finds to Assets. If Safeguard for Privileged Passwords cannot detect the operating system, it applies the "Other" or "Other Linux" operating system which you can modify later. For more information, see Modifying an asset.
