You can modify an asset.
Select the view of the asset's information you want to modify ( such as General, Accounts, or Account Dependencies, Access Request Policies, Asset Groups, Discovered Services, or History).
To change an asset's connection information, for example connection timeout, double-click the Connection information in the General tab or click the Edit icon. You can also double-click an asset name to open the General settings edit window.
The following notes apply to attempting to change information on the General tab.
To view or export the details of each operation that has affected the selected asset, switch to the History tab. To export, select the time frame then click Export.
The Asset Administrator can delete an asset even if there are active access requests.
Important: When you delete an asset, you also permanently delete all the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords accounts associated with the asset.
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.
To import objects
Safeguard for Privileged Passwords imports the objects into its database.
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).
