Getting acquainted with the console

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords has two graphical user interfaces that allow you to manage password and session requests, approvals and reviews for your managed accounts and systems:

  • Windows desktop client

    The desktop client consists of an end-user view and an administrator view. The administrative functionality is dynamically enabled based on the user's permissions.

  • Web client

    The web client is functionally similar to the desktop client end-user view. It exposes the access request workflow functionality and is meant primarily for the non-administrative user. The web client uses a responsive UI design to adapt to the user's device -- from desktops to tablets or mobile phones.

NOTE: If a Safeguard Sessions Appliance is joined to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, session recording is handled via Safeguard for Privileged Session.

Since the functionality of these two user interfaces are similar, this guide only describes the Windows desktop client. The Safeguard for Privileged Passwords desktop client console consists of these main components:

Toolbar controls

The toolbar along the top-right corner of the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords console, has these controls:
