Entitlements

A Safeguard for Privileged Passwords entitlement is a set of access request policies that restrict system access to authorized users. Typically you create entitlements for various job functions; that is, you assign permissions to perform certain operations to specific roles such as Help desk, Unix administrator, or Oracle administrator, and so forth. Password release entitlements consist of users, user groups, and access request policies. Session request entitlements consist of users, user groups, assets, asset groups, and access request policies.

The Auditor and the Security Policy Administrator have permission to access Entitlements.
