Managing partitions

Use the controls and tabbed pages on the Partitions page to perform the following tasks to manage partitions:

Adding a partition

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.

To add a partition

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Partitions.
  2. Click  Add Partition from the toolbar.
  3. In the Partition dialog, enter the following information:
    1. Name: Enter a unique name for the partition.

      Limit: 50 characters

    2. Description: (Optional) Enter information about this partition.

      Limit: 255 characters

    3. Delegated Owner: (Optional) Browse to select one or more users to manage the assets and accounts in this partition.

      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.
