Important Terminologies

While working with Password Manager Pro, you will come across some terminologies having unique meanings. It is worthwhile to take a note of those terminologies before proceeding further:

Category Feature Explanation

User Management

AD / LDAP support /Azure AD


Smart Card Authentication

Integration with external directory server for user management, authentication

If you have a smart card authentication system in your environment, you can configure PMP to authenticate users with their smart cards, bypassing other first factor authentication methods like AD, LDAP or Local Authentication.

User Roles

Four different user roles providing fine-grained access control

Custom Roles

In addition to the pre-defined roles in Password Manager Pro, the administrator can also create custom roles for your users. The role customization option allows you to create new role from scratch, by selecting the desired options from the list of 100+ operations available in PMP.

Enabling an administrator to see all the resources in the system unconditionally

User Groups

Create groups of users for carrying out operations in bulk

Resource Management

Resource types

Categorise resources based on their types (for e.g Windows Servers). Create and manage your own resource types, in addition to the default types

Resource Groups

The agents periodically check for tasks by opening a secure connection with the server and no longer need to have a port open in the system they are installed.

Password Management

Resource Customization

Password Access Control Workflow
