Each Asset Administrator can set a unique default partition and partition profile so that all new assets that administrator adds are automatically assigned to the default partition and default partition profile. For more information, see Setting a default partition profile.
To set the default partition
When you create a new partition, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords creates a corresponding default profile with default schedules and rules. Each Asset Administrator can set a unique default partition and partition profile. Once you set a default profile, all new assets and accounts you add are automatically assigned to that profile.
Safeguard for Privileged Passwords sets the default schedules to "Never" verify or reset passwords. To change the settings, see Modifying a partition profile.
When you associate an asset to a partition, all the accounts associated with that asset, are also added to the scope of that partition. For more information, see About partition profiles.
To set another profile as the default
This topic explains how to assign an asset or an account to a partition profile. You can only add assets and accounts to a profile that are assigned to the scope of the partition.
You can also configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to run automatic Asset Discovery or Account Discovery jobs. For more information, see Discovery.
Only associate accounts to a partition profile that you want Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to manage. For example, a directory can be added to any partition as an asset and any partition profile can be assigned. If directory user accounts are associated with a partition profile, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords will automatically change the user passwords according to the change password schedule in the profile. Depending on the settings, this could prevent a directory user from logging into Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.
