Enable or Disable Services

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to enable or disable access request and password management services. These settings control session and password release requests, manual account password validation and reset tasks as well as the automatic profile check and change tasks in Partitions.

All services are enabled by default. The toggles appear blue with the switch to the right when a service is enabled and gray with the switch to the left when a service is disabled.

These global settings are enabled by default. By default, these services are disabled for service accounts and for accounts and assets found as part of a discovery job.

Service accounts can be modified to adhere to these schedules and discovered accounts can be activated when managed.

It is the responsibility of the Appliance Administrator to manage the access request and password management services.

Navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | Access Request | Enable or Disable Services.
