Password View and Update
Administrators create password view policies for target service desk accounts. The policy can dictate the interaction between a user password request and the application. When a user asks to view a privileged account password, the service desk application prompts for a service desk ticket number. The application uses the ticket number to validate the user.
The following IT service management products have password update or view capabilities:
- BMC Remedy version 8.1 and 9.1
- CA Service Desk Manager r14.1 and r17.0
- HP Service Manager version 9.32 and 9.41
- ServiceNow Jakarta and Istanbul
- Salesforce Service Cloud Winter 2015 release (supports password viewing, but not updating)
Auto-Connect to an Application
To log in automatically to the service desk application, configure a password view policy to the privileged user account. This policy can use a service desk ticket number to connect automatically to the application.
