Accounts

A Safeguard for Privileged Passwords account is a unique identifier that Safeguard for Privileged Passwords uses to control access to assets. Managed accounts (including directory accounts and service accounts ) and groups of accounts can be associated with an asset. Each account has an associated asset; if you delete an asset, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords permanently deletes all the accounts associated with it.

The Auditor and the Asset Administrator have permission to access Accounts.

On Unix assets, the accounts are stored in etc/passwd; however, each platform implements this concept differently.

Service accounts are designated with a Service Account icon. For more information, see About service accounts.

The Accounts view displays the following information about the selected account.

For information about configuring Account Discovery in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, see Account Discovery job workflow.
