Running an entitlement report

You can run an entitlement report.

To run an entitlement report

  1. From the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords desktop Home page, select  Reports.
  2. In the first drop-down, choose a type of report: User, Asset, or Account.
  3. In the second drop-down, you can select All or you can select Browse to select one or more objects for the report. If you select multiple objects, the selected objects display in the center of the page. Click a selected object to display the object's information at the bottom of the page.
  4. The top of the report displays the following information.


    • Name: The name of the user.
    • Username: The user name used for authentication.
    • Domain name: The name of the domain of the user.
    • Accounts: Number of accounts each user is allowed to access.
      If an access request policy allows password access to linked accounts, an account may display twice: once based on the policy scope and a second time because it is a linked account. In the bottom grid, see the From Linked Account column. For more information, see Access Config tab.


    • Name: The name of the asset.
    • Accounts: Number of accounts on this asset that can be accessed.
    • Requesters: Number of users allowed to request access to the asset's accounts.
    • Partition: The name of the partition to which the asset belongs.
    • Users: The name of the requesters allowed to request access.


    • Name: Name of the account.
    • Asset: Name of the asset associated with the account.
    • Domain Name: If applicable, the domain of the account.
    • Requesters: Number of requesters allowed to access an account.
  5. Select an item from the top pane to view additional detail in the lower pane.
    For entitlements by assets, you can continue to drill down into the details of an item. For example, you can view both the Total Accounts tab and the People tab to see more details about the users that can request the accounts on an asset. Select an item from the results to drill down further into the details about the users and the accounts.
  6. To filter the results, use the filter control in the column heading. For more information, see Filtering report results.

To export the report

  1. To export, select Export and then select Export as CSV or Export as JSON. Save the file to the location desired. Different information may be returned based on whether you select CSV or JSON. For example, JSON includes details of accounts discovered and CSV includes only the count of accounts.

  2. The time is set according to the user time zone. You can convert timestamps another time, if necessary.Once the report is exported, you can convert time stamps to local time, if necessary. For more information, see Converting time stamps.

To run the report

Click the Run button to generate the report.

Converting time stamps

When you export .csv or .json files, the time stamp will be in the user's time zone. If the time is in UTC/GMT time, you can convert the time to your local time.

.csv opened in Excel

  1. Identify how many hours different your local time is from the UTC or GMT exported by googling "UTC to my time." The value will be within the -12 to 12 range.

  2. In the column to the right of the time stamp, enter one of the following formulas. These examples assume the exported time is in cell J1 and the exported time is -7 hours after the current local time.

    • =J1-TIME(7,0,0)
    • =J1+(-7 / 24)

    Below, the exported time stamp is 17:55:59 GMT (5:55:59 p.m.).

    The formula converts the time to the local time stamp of 10:55:59 p.m.


You can find code to convert JSON UTC time to local time. One

Administrative Tools

The  Administrative Tools allow you to add all the objects you need to write access request policies, such as users, accounts, and assets. From this view, you can also configure all of the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords settings.

Note: You must have administrator permissions to use the  Administrative Tools and the administrator permissions you have determine what you can view and modify.

The navigation pane along the left side of the console gives you access to these administrative tools.

Table 16: Administrative Tools

Toolbox Where you can gain quick access to all the tasks you can perform from a single portal Users with any Safeguard administrator privileges
Accounts Where you associate account identities with managed systems Asset Administrator or Auditor
Account Groups Where you define sets of accounts that you can add to the scope of an access request policy Auditor or Security Policy Administrator
Assets Where you add computers, servers, network devices, or applications to be managed by a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Appliance Asset Administrator or Auditor
Asset Groups Where you define sets of assets that you can add to the scope of an access request policy Auditor or Security Policy Administrator
Discovery Where you configure asset and account discovery jobs which apply a set of rules to discover and automatically add assets and accounts to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Auditor or Asset Administrator
Entitlements Where you specify the access request policies that restrict system access to authorized users Auditor or Security Policy Administrator
Partitions Where you define collections of assets that can be used to segregate assets for delegation Asset Administrator, Auditor, or delegated partition owner

All of the Administrative Tools views have the following components, except for the Toolbox and Settings:

  • Toolbar options across the top of the view.
  • Object list (left pane)
  • Search box at the top of the object list.
  • Details pane (right pane)

Toolbar options

The toolbar at the top of the views (except for the Toolbox and Settings), contain these options, depending on your Administrator permissions and the administrative tool you are using.

These buttons are available:

  • Apply to apply the changes and keep the dialog open
  • OK to apply the changes and close the dialog.
  • Cancel to ignore any changes made, if any, and close the dialog.

Toolbar options include the following.

  • Add: Add objects to the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords appliance.
  • Delete: Remove objects from the appliance.
  • Refresh the screen.

    NOTE: Whenever you add, modify, or delete an object in Administrative Tools, the changes you make cannot be seen by other administrators running Safeguard for Privileged Passwords on other clients unless they click Refresh.

  • Import : Only available for Accounts, Assets, and Users. Add a set of objects from a .csv file. For more information, see Importing objects.
  • User Security: Only available for Users. Menu options include Set Password and Unlock accounts. For more information about these options, refer to Setting a local user's password and Unlocking a user's account.
  • Account Security: Only available for Accounts. Menu options include the following.
  • Permissions: Only available for Users. Set administrator permissions for users. For more information, see Administrator permissions.
  • Set as Default: Only available for Partitions. Set a partition as the default. For more information, see Setting a default partition and Setting a default profile.
  • Download SSH Key: Only available for Assets. Add the SSH key to the selected asset. For more information, see Downloading a public SSH key.
  • Password Archive: Only available for Accounts. Display the password history for the selected account. For more information, see Viewing password archive.
  • SSH Key Archive: Display the SSH key history for the selected account. For more information, see Viewing SSH key archive.
  • Access Requests: Only available for Accounts and Assets. Enable or disable access request services for the selected account or asset.
  • Show Disabled: Display the accounts or assets marked as disabled.
  • Hide Disabled: Hide the accounts or assets marked as disabled.
  • Syncronize Now: Only available for Assets from the Toolbar.

    Run the directory addition (incremental) synchronization process by asset and account. The sync is queued by asset by provider and runs one directory sync on that asset at a time. You can run multiple syncs in parallel on different assets. This is the faster type of directory sync because deletions are not synced. A Tasks window displays the progress and outcome of the task. You can click Details to see more information or click Stop to cancel the task. In addition, this process runs through the discovery, if there are discovery rules and configurations set up.

    The API (Assets/Synchronize) can be used to run the deletion (full) sync which includes all deletions, additions, and changes. This sync takes longer (perhaps hours), especially the first time it is run based on your directory setup.

    The Assets, General tab displays the frequency of sync additions and deletions.
