Adding an account

It is the responsibility of the Asset Administrator to add assets and accounts to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. While an asset can have multiple accounts, you can only associate an account with one asset.

The new account displays on the Accounts list.

Note: Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to set up account discovery jobs that run automatically. For more information, see Account Discovery job workflow.

To add an account

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Accounts.
  2. Click  Add Account from the toolbar.
  3. In the Assets dialog, for Asset Name, select an asset to associate with this account then click OK.

    • Description: (Optional) Enter information about this managed account. Limit: 255 characters.

    • Password Profile or SSH Key Profile: Browse to select and assign a profile to govern this account.

      By default an account inherits the profile of its associated asset, but you can assign it to a different profile for this partition. For more information, see Assigning assets or accounts to a password profile and SSH key profile.

    • Enable Password Request: This check box is selected by default, indicating that password release requests are enabled for this account. Clear this option to prevent someone from requesting the password for this account. By default, a user can request the password for any account in the scope of the entitlements in which they are an authorized user.

    • Enable Session Request: This check box is selected by default, indicating that session access requests are enabled for this account. Clear this option to prevent someone from requesting session access using this account. By default, a user can make an access request for any account in the scope of the entitlements in which he or she is an authorized user.

    • Enable SSH Key Request: This check box is selected by default, indicating that SSH key release requests are enabled for this account. Clear this option to prevent someone from requesting the SSH key for this account.

    • Available for use across all partitions (For directory accounts only): When selected, any partition can use this account and the password is given to other administrators. For example, this account can be used as a dependent account or a service account for other assets. Potentially, you may have assets that are running services as the account, and you can update those assets when the service account changes. If not selected, partition owners and other partitions will not know the account exists. Although archive servers are not bound by partitions, this option must be selected for the directory account for the archive server to be configured with the directory account.
