Emergency tab

Use the Emergency tab to enable emergency access for the accounts and assets governed by the access request policy.

Table 111: Access Request Policy: Emergency tab properties
Property Description

Enable Emergency Access

Select this check box to allow users to request emergency access to accounts and assets governed by this policy. Clear this option to disallow emergency access.

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.

Notify When Account is Released with Emergency access | To

(Optional) When emergency access is enabled, build an escalation notification contact list, by entering an email address or selecting To to choose an email address of a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user.

If you used the To button to add Safeguard for Privileged Passwords users, you can use the Clear icon to remove an individual address from this list or right-click and select Remove All to clear all addresses from the list.

You can enter email addresses for non-Safeguard for Privileged Passwords users.

To send event notifications to a user, you must configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to send alerts. For more information, see Configuring alerts.

IMPORTANT: Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not dynamically maintain the email addresses for an escalation notification contact list. If you change a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user's email address or delete a Safeguard for Privileged Passwords user after creating a policy, you must update the email addresses in an escalation notification contact list manually. For more information, see User not notified.

Ignore Time Restrictions

This check box is selected by default, indicating that Safeguard for Privileged Passwords is to ignore time restrictions when a user requests emergency access. Clear this check box if you want to enforce the time restrictions set for this policy and only allow emergency access during the specified time period.

Adding users or user groups to an entitlement

When you add users to an entitlement, you are specifying which people can request passwords to the accounts governed by the selected entitlement's access request policies, or which people can request sessions for the accounts and assets governed by the selected entitlement's access request policies. A user can be a Sessions Appliance certificate user. For more information, see Session Appliances with SPS link.

It is the responsibility of the Security Policy Administrator to add users to entitlements. The Security Policy Administrator only has permission to add groups, not users. For more information, see Administrator permissions.

To add requester users to an entitlement

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Entitlements.
  2. In Entitlements, select an entitlement from the object list and click the Users tab.
  3. Click  Add User or User Group from the details toolbar.
  4. Select one or more users or user groups from the list in the Users or User Groups dialog, and click OK.

If you do not see the user or user group you are looking for, depending on your Administrator permissions, you can create them in the Users or User Groups dialog. (You must have Authorizer Administrator or User Administrator permissions to create users or Security Policy Administrator permissions to create user groups.)

To create new users or user groups in the Users or User Groups dialog

  1. Click  Create New, then select Create a New User or Create a New User Group.

    For more information about creating users or user groups, see Adding a user or Adding a user group.

  2. Create additional users or user groups as required.
  3. Click OK to add the new users and user groups to the selected entitlement's membership.

Deleting an access request policy

IMPORTANT: When you delete a policy, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords deletes it permanently, but it does not delete the accounts governed by the policy.

To delete an access request policy from an entitlement

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Entitlements.
  2. In Entitlements, select an entitlement from the object list and open the Access Request Policies tab.
  3. Select a policy.
  4. Click Delete Selected.
  5. Confirm your request.

Modifying an access request policy

Access request polices can be migrated. For more information, see Creating an access request policy.
