Assigning assets or accounts to a partition profile

This topic explains how to assign an asset or an account to a partition profile. You can also configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to run automatic asset or account discovery jobs. For more information, see How do I setup discovery jobs.

To add assets or accounts to a partition profile

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Partitions.
  2. In Partitions, select a partition from the object list and open the Profiles tab.
  3. Select a profile and click the  Details icon.
  4. To add an asset to the selected partition profile, open the Assets tab.
    1. Click Add Asset.
    2. On the Asset dialog, select the assets to be added.

If you do not see the account you are looking for, it might be assigned to a different partition. Depending on your Administrator permissions, you can create a new account in the selection dialog. (You must have Asset Administrator permissions to create assets and accounts.)

To create a new account from the Account selection dialog

  1. Click  Create New.

    For more information, see Adding an account.
