Step 1: Create the Authorizer Administrator

  1. Log in using the Bootstrap Administrator account. (The password was changed from the default when you created the appliance using the instructions in the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Appliance Setup Guide.)
  2. Create the Authorizer Administrator, which is a user who can authorize other administrators. Give the user Authorizer permissions so the user can grant permissions to other users and change their own permissions. For more information, see Adding a user..

  3. Log out as the Bootstrap Administrator.

  4. Log in as the Authorizer Administrator.
  5. Disable the Bootstrap Administrator.

Step 2: Authorizer Administrator creates administrators

Add the user administrator permissions. A user can have more than one set of permissions. For a list of permissions granted to the different SPP administrators, see Administrator permissions.

  1. Make sure you have logged in using the Authorizer Administrator account.
  2. Customize the Local Password Rule. (Navigate to Appliance Management > Safeguard Access > Local Password Rule.)
  3. Add users for the following administrator permissions (Adding a user):
    1. User Administrator
    2. Help Desk Administrator
    3. Appliance Administrator
    4. Operations Administrator

    6. Asset Administrator
    7. Security Policy Administrator

    1. Email: Configure the SMTP server to be used for email notifications. SPP provides default email templates for most events, which can be customized. For more information, see Email..
    2. Identity and Authentication: Configure directory services such as Active Directory and LDAP servers to be used as identity and authentication providers for SPP users. Configure SPP as a relying party that uses SAML 2.0 to integrate with external federation services to authenticate users. Create a RADIUS server to be used as a primary or secondary authentication provider. For more information, see Identity and Authentication..
    3. SNMP: Configure SNMP subscriptions for sending SNMP traps to your SNMP console when certain events occur. For more information, see SNMP..
    4. Starling: Join SPP to Starling to take advantage of other Starling services. For more information, see Starling..
    5. Syslog: Configure the syslog servers where event notifications are to be sent. For more information, see Syslog..
