Time Restrictions tab

Time restrictions control when the entitlement is in effect relative to the user's time zone. For more information, see About time restrictions.

On the Time Restrictions tab, specify the time restriction properties for the entitlement.

Navigation: Administrative Tools | Entitlements| (add or edit entitlement)

Have the Entitlement Expire on Date and Time

About time restrictions

An entitlement's time restrictions enforce when Safeguard for Privileged Passwords uses a policy; a policy's time restrictions enforce when a user can access the account passwords. If the entitlement and the policy both have time restrictions, the user can only check out the password for the overlapping time frame.

Time restrictions control when the entitlement or policy is in effect relative to a user's time zone. Although Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Appliances run on Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the user's time zone enforces the time restrictions set in the entitlement or policy. This means that if the appliance and the user are in different time zones, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords enforces the policy in the user's time zone set in his account profile.

Creating an access request policy

It is the responsibility of the Security Policy Administrator to define access request policies in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.

A policy defines:

  • The scope which may be assets, asset groups, accounts, or account groups.
  • The access type which may be password, SSH, RDP (remote desktop), or telnet.
  • The rules for checking out passwords, such as the duration, how many approvals are required, and so forth.
Considerations
  • An access request policy is only assigned to one cluster.
  • An access request policy is only used in the entitlement in which it is created. If you delete an entitlement, all access request policies associated with that entitlement are deleted. You cannot copy an access request policy and add it to another entitlement; access request policies are entitlement-specific.

To add an access request policy to an entitlement

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Entitlements.
  2. In Entitlements, select an entitlement from the object list and open the Access Request Policies tab.
  3. Click Create Access Policy from the details toolbar.
  4. In the Access Request Policy dialog, provide information in each of the tabs:

    General tab

    Where you add general information about the access request policy as well as specify the type of access being requested.

    Scope tab

    Where you assign assets, asset groups, accounts, or account groups to an access request policy.

    Requester tab

    Where you configure the access request policy requester settings.

    Approver tab

    Where you configure the access request policy approver settings.

    Reviewer tab

    Where you configure the access request policy reviewer settings.

    Access Config tab

    Where you define the access settings for the selected type of request including allowing users to request passwords from their respective linked accounts.

    Session Settings tab

    Where you configure the recording settings for session access requests.

    Time Restrictions tab

    Where you indicate policy time restrictions.

    Emergency tab

    Where you enable emergency access for the accounts governed by the access request policy.

Access Type

Specify the type of access being requested:

  • Password
  • RDP

NOTE: You can configure an access request policy for a password release, however, if the Privileged Passwords module license is not installed, you will not be able to submit a password release request.

Similarly, you can configure an access request policy for a session request, but if the embedded sessions module for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords license is not installed, you will not be able to initiate an RDP or SSH session request.
