Adding users or user groups to an entitlement

General tab

Navigate to Administrative Tools | Entitlements| (add or edit entitlement).

On the General tab, specify the following information about the entitlement.

Property Description

Limit: 50 characters

Limit: 255 characters


The priority of this entitlement compared to other entitlements.

If a user desires to access an account in the scope of two different entitlements, then the entitlement with the highest priority (that is, the lowest number) takes precedence. For more information, see About priority precedence.

About priority precedence

An entitlement defines which users are authorized to check out passwords for accounts in the scope of its policies. A policy defines scope (that is, which accounts) and the rules for checking out passwords, such as the duration, how many approvals are required, and so on.

It is possible for an account to be governed by more than one entitlement, or is in the scope of more than one policy within an entitlement. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords uses both entitlement and policy priorities to determine which policy to use for a password release. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords first considers the entitlement priority, then the priorities of access request policies within that entitlement.

Example scenario:
  • Entitlement A (priority 1)
    • Policy: Week Day Policy.
      • Policy time restrictions: Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
      • Scope: AccountX
  • Entitlement B (priority 2)
    • Policy 1: Sunday AM (priority 1)
      • Policy time restrictions: Sunday 8:00 to 12:00.
      • Scope: AccountX
    • Policy 2: Sunday PM (priority 2)
      • Policy time restrictions: Sunday 13:00 to 17:00.
      • Scope: AccountX

Notice that AccountX is in the scope of all three of these policies.

If a user requests the password for AccountX for Sunday at 4 p.m., Safeguard for Privileged Passwords first considers Entitlement A because it is priority 1. When it determines that the policy time restrictions prevent the password release, it then considers Entitlement B.

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords first considers Entitlement B's priority 1 policy. When it determines that the time restrictions prevent the password release, it then considers Policy 2. Once the request is satisfied, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords grants the request.
