Maintaining a least privileged use environment


Maintain a least privileged use environment by processing Self-Service Elevation requests, using the Console Email Configuration screen, and using group policy settings.

Processing Self-Service Elevation Requests


Monitor and process Self-Service requests from users using Self-Service Notifications and the Self-Service Elevation Requests screen under the Discovery & Remediation tab. You can approve or deny requests for access to run privileged applications. If approved, an Elevation rule is automatically generated for each request.
