The following is a list of third-party applications that can be used by Password Manager:
Password Manager Service and the Administration site are a core component of Password Manager.
Password Manager Service is a Windows service that provides core functionality and runs under the Password Manager Service account, which is specified during Password Manager installation.
The Administration site provides all the necessary settings for an administrator to configure and use Password Manager. Using the Administration site, the administrator can configure user and helpdesk scopes, Management Policies, password policy rules, etc.
Note, that the Administration site cannot be installed separately from Password Manager Service.
When installing the Administration site and Password Manager Service, the Self-Service and Helpdesk sites are also installed.
The Self-Service site provides users with the ability to easily and securely manage their passwords, thus eliminating the need for assistance from high-level administrators and reducing helpdesk workload.
The Self-Service site can be installed on the same server as the Administration Site and Password Manager Service, or on a stand-alone server, for example, if you want to install the Self-Service site in a perimeter network (DMZ).
The Helpdesk site handles typical tasks performed by helpdesk operators, such as resetting passwords, unlocking user accounts, assigning temporary passcodes, and managing users' Questions and Answers profiles.
The Helpdesk site can be installed either on the same server as the as the Administration Site and Password Manager Service, or on a stand-alone server.
