Use valid combinations of identity and authentication providers. For more information, see Identity and Authentication.

Table 212: User: Identity tab properties
Property Description
Identity Provider

The source of the user's identity. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords comes with a built-in identity provider called Local that will allow you to manually enter user information that is stored directly in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. Or you can select an Active Directory or LDAP server that you have previously configured and then browse for a user. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords will periodically synchronize with the directory to keep the information up to date.

Indicate how the user's identity is managed by Safeguard for Privileged Passwords:

  • Local
  • Active Directory
  • LDAP
  • Starling

(Active Directory, Starling, or LDAP)

If the identity provider is Active Directory, Starling, or LDAP, click the Browse button to choose a username. The remaining fields are auto-populated.
