Search box

Whether you are using the desktop client or web client, the search box can be used to filter the data being displayed. When you enter a text string into the search box, the results include items that have a string attribute that contains the text that was entered. This same basic search functionality is also available for many of the detail panes and dialogs, allowing you to filter the data displayed in the associated pane or dialog.

When searching for objects in the object lists, an attribute search functionality is also available where you can filter the results, based on a specific attribute. That is, the search term matches if the specified attribute contains the text. To perform an attribute search, click the icon to select the attribute to be searched.

Rules for using the search functionality:

  • Search strings are not case-sensitive. Exception: in the web client, the Approvals and Reviews searches are case sensitive.
  • Wild cards are not allowed.
  • Try using quotes and omitting quotes. As you use the product, you will become familiar with the search requirements for the search fields you frequent. Safeguard may perform a general search (for example, omits quotes) or a literal search (for example, includes quotes). Example scenarios follow:

    • On the Settings pane, search strings must be an exact match because a literal search is performed. Do not add quotes or underlines. For example, from the Settings pane, enter password rules to return Safeguard Access | Password Rule. If you enter "password rules" or password_rules, the following message is returned: No matches found.
    • On the Users pane search box:

      • A general search does not return anything if you use quotes because it uses a literal search (searches for the quotes). For example: searching for "ab_misc2" returns the message: There is nothing to show here.
      • You can use quotes in an attribute search if there are spaces in the search name. For example, entering the following in the search box Username: "ab_misc2" returns: AB_misc2.
  • When multiple search strings are included, all search criteria must be met in order for an object to be included in the results list.
  • When you combine a basic search and an attribute search, the order they are entered into the search box matters. The attribute searches can be in any order, but the basic search must come after the attribute searches.
  • In large environments, you will see a result number to tell you how many objects match the criteria; however, only the first 200 objects will be retrieved from the server. When you scroll down the list, more objects will be retrieved (paged) as needed.

To search for objects or object details

  1. Enter a text string in the Search box. As you type, the list displays items whose string attributes contain the text that was entered.

    Examples:

    • Enter T in the search box to search for items that contain the letter "T".
    • Enter sse to list all items that contain the string "sse," (such as "Asset").

    NOTE: The status bar along the bottom of the console shows the number of items returned.

  2. To clear the search criteria, click  Clear.

    When you clear the search criteria, the original list of objects is displayed.

You can also Search by attribute and Select a drop-down to sort .

Search by attribute

The attributes available for searching are dependent on the type of object being searched. The search drop-down menu lists the attributes that can be selected.

API attributes can be searched

The drop-down menu lists a limited number of attributes that can be searched; however, you can perform an attribute search using the English name of any attribute as it appears in the API. Nested attributes can be chained together using a period (.). To see a list of all the attributes, see the API documentation. For more information about the API, see Using the API.

Entering the search string

  1. Click the icon and select the attribute to be searched.

    The selected attribute is added to the search box. For example, if you select Last Name then LastName: is added to the search box.

  2. In the search box, enter the text string after the colon in the attribute label.

    You can specify multiple attributes, repeating these steps to add an additional attribute to the search box. Do not add punctuation marks, such as commas or colons, to separate the different attributes. When multiple attributes are included, all search criteria must be met in order for an object to be included in the results list.

    As you type, the list displays items whose selected attributes contain the text that was entered.

    NOTE: The status bar along the bottom of the console shows the number of items returned.

  3. To clear the search criteria, click Clear.

    When you clear the search criteria, the original list of objects are displayed.

Privileged access requests

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords provides a workflow engine that supports time restrictions, multiple approvers, reviewers, emergency access, and expiration of policy. It also includes the ability to input reason codes and integrate directly with ticketing systems.

In order for a request to progress through the workflow process, authorized users perform assigned tasks. These tasks are performed from the user's Home page in the desktop client or web client.

As a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user, your Home page provides a quick view to the access request tasks that need your immediate attention. In addition, an Administrator can set up alerts to be sent to users when there are pending tasks needing attention. For more information, see Configuring alerts.

The access request tasks you see on your Home page depend on the rights and permissions you have been assigned by an entitlement's access request policies. For example:

  • Requesters see tasks related to submitting new access requests, as well as actions to be taken once a request has been approved (for example, viewing passwords, copying passwords, launching sessions, and checking in completed requests).

    Requesters can also define favorite requests, which then appear on their Home page for subsequent use. This can be done from either the desktop client or web client:

  • Approvers see tasks related to approving (or denying) and revoking access requests.
  • Reviewers see tasks related to reviewing completed (checked in) access requests, including playing back a session if session recording is enabled.

The following three workflows are available:
