When you add an Account Discovery job, you can identify whether or not to automatically manage found accounts, whether to discover services, and whether to automatically configure dependent systems.

The accounts in the scope of the discovery job may include accounts that were previously added (manually) to the Safeguard partition. For more information, see Adding an account.

  • You can create or edit an Account Discovery job, then associate assets to the Account Discovery job via the Occurrences button.
