Once you add an account, you cannot modify an account's associated asset or its name but you can modify other information.
Navigate to Administrative Tools | Accounts.
When you delete an account, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not delete it from its associated asset, it simply removes it from Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.
If you delete a service account, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords changes the asset's authentication type to None which disables automatic password management for all accounts that are associated with this asset. All assets must have a service account in order to check and change the passwords for the accounts associated with it. For more information, see About service accounts.
Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to import a .csv file containing a set of accounts, assets, or users. A .csv template for import can be downloaded when you click Import from the toolbar. For more information, see Creating an import file.

Note: Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not add an object if any column contains invalid data in the .csv file with the follow exceptions:
You can use the steps like those above to import your existing directory infrastructure (such as Microsoft Active Directory). Additional information specific to directory import follows.
Import the directory (and service account) via Administrative Tools | Assets | Import Asset and browse to select the .csv file. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords imports the directory as an asset.
The directory's service account is automatically added to the list of accounts you can viewed via the Assets | Accounts tab.
By default, the service account password is automatically managed according to the check and change settings in the profile that governs the partition. For more information, see Creating a partition profile. If you do not want Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to manage the service account password, assign the account to a profile that is set to never change passwords. For more information, see Assigning assets or accounts to a partition profile.
The service account is added to the asset's Accounts tab and is disabled for password request and session request. For more information, see Accounts tab (asset).
To change either setting, navigate to Administrative Tools | Accounts and double-click the account. Then select the following check boxes, as desired: Enable Password Request and Enable Session Request. For more information, see General tab (account).

A CSV file is a text file used to store database entries where each line is a unique record and each record consists of fields of data separated by commas. You must not add any trailing spaces in the properties you define in the CSV file. The easiest way to create a CSV file is by using a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel; however, you can use any text editor, such as Notepad, to create a comma-delineated file, as long as you save the file with a .csv file type extension.
The order of the columns is not important, but the title of the column must match the property name.
To create a customized .csv file template
Select specific template properties from the template properties table, or select the "select all" check box in the heading. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords preselects the required properties; you can select any additional properties you desire.
Select Download Template to save a copy of the template properties table to a location of your choice.
Locate the downloaded template and add your specific information to the template.
