Managing user groups

Use the controls and tabbed pages on the User Groups page to perform the following tasks to manage Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user groups:

Adding a user group

It is the responsibility of the Security Policy Administrator, Authorizer Administrator, and User Administrator to add groups of users to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.

NOTE: It is the responsibility of the Authorizer Administrator or the User Administrator to add directory groups. For more information, see Adding a directory user group.

To add a user group

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | User Groups.
  2. Click  Add User Groups from the toolbar.
  3. In the User Groups dialog, enter the following information:
    1. Name: Enter a unique name for the user group.

      Limit: 50 characters

    2. Description: (Optional) Enter information about this user group.

      Limit: 255 characters

  4. On the Permissions tab, select Help Desk and/or the Personal Password Vault permission to be assigned to each member of the Group. For each group member, the selected permissions of the Group will be combined with any existing permissions that have already been granted explicitly or by some other Group to which they belong. For more information, see the Permissions tab (add user).
    During synchronization of a Group (which occurs every 15 minutes), a user may be identified as no longer being a member. In this case, the selected permissions of the Group are removed from the user unless the user is also a member of another Group from which they inherit the permission. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not keep track of nor distinguish between an explicitly assigned permission versus one that was assigned via a Group.

    IMPORTANT: The Personal Password Vault permission, like any other permission, can be set explicitly on a user or inherited from a Group. If a user with the Personal Password Vault permission stores one or more personal passwords and then later has the permission revoked, either explicitly or by having been removed from all Groups from which they inherited it, the user will no longer be able to access Personal Password Vault features. But the user’s data within the vault will still be maintained. If at any point the user is granted the Personal Password Vault permission again, they regain access to all of their existing data.

  5. Click Add Group. On an import, the user group is created and the assigned users appear when the import process is complete.

  6. After adding the information, you can edit the following group settings and the synchronization process will be triggered in the background.

    • Directory Group tab: Select or clear the Automatically link Managed Accounts check box.
    • Permissions tab: Change the permissions.
