Removing assets from a partition

You cannot remove assets from a partition.

You can reassign the asset to another partition either from the scope of the other partition or from an asset's General properties. For more information, see Assigning an asset to a partition.

When you associate an asset to a partition, all the accounts associated with that asset, are also added to the scope of that partition. For more information, see About profiles.

Adding users or user groups to a partition

When you add users to a partition, you are specifying the users or user groups that have ownership of a partition.

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

To add users to a partition

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Partitions.
  2. In Partitions, select a partition from the object list and click the Owners 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 account.

Creating a password profile

It is the responsibility of the Asset Administrator or the partition's delegated administrator to add password profiles to partitions.

To add a password profile to a partition

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Partitions.
  2. In Partitions, select a partition from the object list and open the Password Profiles tab.
  3. Click Create Password Profile from the details toolbar.
  4. On the General tab, supply the following information:

    1. Name: Enter a unique name for the profile. Limit: 50 characters

    2. Description: Enter information about this profile. Limit: 255 characters

  5. On the Check Password tab, configure the check password settings which are the rules used to verify account passwords. Expand the Description to see information, if available, about the selected check password setting. Perform one of the following.

    Selecting either of these icons displays the Change Password Settings dialog, allowing you to specify the appropriate change password settings. For more information, see Adding change password settings.

  7. On the Account Password Rules tab, select a previously defined account password rule. An account password rule is a complexity rule that governs the construction of the new password created by Safeguard for Privileged Passwords during an automatic password change. Expand the Description to see information, if available, about the selected account password rule. Perform one of the following.

    • Select a previously defined change password setting from the drop-down menu. Click Edit to modify the selected account password rule.
    • Click Add to create a new account password rule.

    For more information, see Adding an account password rule.

  8. Click Create Profile to save your selections and create the profile.

When creating a new profile, the Password Sync Groups tab is not displayed. This tab is displayed while editing a profile. For more information, see Modifying a password profile. You can use the Password Sync Groups tab to add or update a password sync group governed by the profile change schedule. For more information, see Password sync groups.
