Reviewing a session request

The Security Policy Administrator can configure an access request policy to require a review of completed session requests for assets or accounts in the scope of the policy.

Note: You can configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to notify you of an access request that requires your review. For more information, see Configuring alerts..

To review a completed sessions request

  1. From your  Home page, the Reviews widget has these controls:
    1. Click (or tap)  (expand down) to open the list of pending reviews.
    2. Click (or tap)  Popout to float the Reviews pane.

      You can then select and drag the pane to any location on the console and re-size the window.

    Note: You enable or disable the Home page widgets in the  Settings menu.

  2. Open the list of pending reviews and select an account name to see the details of the sessions request.
  3. Take the following action on sessions requests:

    1. Select Workflow to review the transactions that took place in the selected request.

      • If Record Sessions is enabled in the policy, click (or tap) Play on the Initialize Session event to play back the session.

        NOTE: A (green dot) indicates the session is "live". A user with Security Policy administrator permissions can click this icon to follow an active session.

        NOTE: If the session recording has been archived from the local Safeguard file system or was recorded prior to joining a Sessions Appliance, you will see a Download button instead of a Play button. Click (or tap) Download to download the recording and then click (or tap) Play.

      • If Enable Command Detection is enabled in the policy, expand to show the details and click the events link on the Initialize Session event to view a list of the commands and programs run during the session.

        NOTE: For an RDP session, the setting is Enable Windows Title Detection. When enabled, you can view a list of windows that were opened during the privileged session.

    2. Select  Review to complete the review process.

      Optionally, enter a comment of up to 255 characters.

    Once the review is complete, it no longer appears on the Reviews pane.
