Minimum permissions

Minimum permissions

As Password Manager sets passwords and other information on User objects in Active Directory, One Identity recommends that the best method to grant sufficient permissions is to make the Password Manager Service account a member of Domain Admins.

However, if the Password Manager Service account cannot be added to Domain Admins due to security and internal company restrictions, follow the comprehensive step-by-step instructions mentioned in https://support.oneidentity.com/password-manager/kb/27946.

In addition, the accounts you specify when installing Password Manager must meet the following requirements:

  • Password Manager service account must be a member of the local Administrators group on the server where Password Manager is installed
  • The Application pool identity account must be a member of the IIS_IUSRS local group when using IIS 7.0. The account must also have permissions to create files in the <Password Manager installation folder>\App_Data folder.
  • The Application pool identity account must have the Full Control permission set for the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\One Identity\Password Manager
