SSH Key Sync Groups settings

desktop client only

The Asset Administrator or a partition's delegated administrator defines the SSH key sync group for an SSH key pair. The new key is generated for the sync group and configured for each of the synced accounts on the target host. All accounts in the SSH key sync group synchronize so the same key can be used to log into all systems.

An SSH key sync group is used to control validation and reset across all associated accounts. The same SSH key is used for one or more accounts associated with the same or different assets. For example, synchronized SSH keys can be used for accounts that support clusters or systems that sync between development, test, and production.

An account can belong to only one SSH key sync group. Multiple SSH key sync groups can be added to a profile.

The profile change schedule is applied to the SSH key sync group. The SSH key sync group controls the tasks to change the SSH keys for the accounts in the sync group. If synchronization fails for an individual account in the SSH key sync group, the account is retried multiple times and, if failing after that, the sync task halts and is rescheduled. The administrator must correct the cause of the failure for the sync task to continue.

If an account is associated with a profile with a daily check schedule and also associated with an SSH key sync group, a mismatch on the daily check will trigger a task to set the SSH key to the current SSH key.

Navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | SSH Key Management | SSH Key Sync Groups.

Users

A user is a person who can log in to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. You can add both local users and directory users. Directory users are users from an external identity store such as Microsoft Active Directory. For more information, see Users and user groups. in Overview of the Entities.

Your administrator permissions determine what you can view in Users. Users displayed in a faded color are disabled. The following table shows you the tabs that are available to each type of administrator.
