Work flow in PMP

If you are an Administrator ...

If you are an administrator engaged in the job of setting up PMP in your environment and managing passwords, following is the ideal work flow:


  1. Setup Mail Server

  2. Add users who will use PMP

  3. Add resources whose passwords you want to manage

  4. Setup disaster recovery



User Addition work flow

Resource Addition work flow 

The first step to actual Password Management in PMP starts with adding your "resource" to the PMP database. Here, resource denotes the server/application/device whose user accounts and passwords are to be managed by PMP.


Access Control work flow

After adding the resources, administrators can put in place access control work flow for extra level of security. After successful authentication into Password Manager Pro, users get access to the passwords that are owned by them or shared to them. In some cases, administrators wish to give temporary access to passwords for certain users for a specified period of time. In other instances, there would be requirements to give users exclusive privilege to passwords. That means, only one user should be allowed to use a particular password at any point of time. When more than one user is required to work on the same resource, problems of coordination arise. Access control on concurrent usage would help resolve such issues.


Setup Disaster Recovery

If you are a Password User ...

If you are a Password user engaged in the job of viewing the passwords allotted to you, there is no need to carry out any configuration. You may directly view the passwords of resources/accounts and edit passwords if you have that permission.
