User Groups

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to add both local user groups (a set of local users) and directory groups (a set of directory accounts) to User Groups. The Security Policy Administrator can add a group of users to an entitlement to authorize them to request access to the accounts and assets governed by the entitlement's access request policies.

User Groups is available to the Authorizer Administrator, User Administrator, Security Policy Administrator, and the Auditor. However, it is only available to the Authorizer Administrator and User Administrator if a directory has been added to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.

The User Groups view displays the following information about the selected user or directory group.
