A partition is a named container for assets that can be used to segregate assets for delegated management. It is the responsibility of the Asset Administrator to add partitions to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. Partitions allow you to set up multiple asset managers, each with the ability to define password guidelines for the managed systems in their own workspace. Typically you would partition assets by geographical location, owner, function, or by operating system. For example, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords can enable you to group Unix assets in a partition and delegate the Unix administrator to manage it.

You must assign all assets, and the accounts associated with them, to a partition. By default Safeguard for Privileged Passwords assigns all assets and their associated accounts to the default partition, but you can set a different default.
