Access Request Policies tab

The Administrative Tools | Entitlements | Access Request Policies tab displays the password and SSH key request policies that govern the accounts in the selected entitlement.

IMPORTANT: The selection made on the Entitlement | Access Request Policy tab takes precedence over the selections on Settings | Cluster | Managed Networks page. If a Managed Networks rule includes nodes from different SPS clusters, SPP will only select the nodes from the same cluster that was assigned on the Session Settings page of the Access Request Policy tab.

Click Create Access Policy from the details toolbar to add a policy to the selected entitlement.

Table 99: Entitlements: Access Request Policies tab properties
Property Description

A displays if a user can request emergency access to the accounts and assets governed by the policy.

Emergency Access overrides the Approver requirements; that is, when a user requests access using Emergency Access, the request is immediately approved, provided that the other constraints are met, such as the Requester settings. Multiple users are allowed to request emergency access simultaneously for the same account or asset.For more information, see Emergency tab.

Time Restrictions

A displays if time restrictions are specified for access requests for accounts and assets governed by the policy. For more information, see Time Restrictions tab.


A Warning displays for the entitlement when it contains at least one expired policy. You can configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to notify you of an impending entitlement or policy expiration by sending an event notification to a syslog server, in an email message, or a SNMP trap. For more information, see External Integration settings.


A Warning displays for the entitlement when it contains at least one invalid policy.

Check the following if there is an invalid policy.

  • Validate that the SPS cluster is still linked to SPP.
  • Validate the SPS cluster is available.
  • Validate there are no network issues that prevent SPP from communicating with SPS.
  • Validate SPP can communicate with the SPS cluster.
  • Validate that the assigned session connection policy is on the SPS cluster master.
  • Validate the session connection policy is still compatible with SPP given what the administrator changed.

For more information, see Managed Networks.
