Setting a default directory profile

When you create a new directory, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords creates a corresponding default profile with default schedules and rules. All accounts that are not explicitly assigned to the default profile are automatically reassigned to the new default profile.

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords sets the default schedules to "Never" verify or reset passwords. To change the settings, see Modifying a directory profile.

To set another profile as the default

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Directories.
  2. In Directories, select a directory from the object list and open the Profiles tab.
  3. Select a profile and click Set as Default from the details toolbar or context menu.

Adding accounts to a directory profile

This topic explains how to add an account to a directory profile. You can also configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to run automatic account discovery jobs. For more information, see Directory account discovery job workflow.

If you add directory user accounts to a directory profile, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords will automatically change the user passwords according to the change password schedule you set in the directory profile which could prevent a directory user from logging into Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.
