Migrating passwords from one location to another

If you change the password storage location, the location does not change for any existing passwords. For example, if you have existing passwords stored in the Privileged Access Service, then change the storage location to SafeNet KeySecure, the existing passwords remain in the Privileged Access Service and all new passwords are stored in KeySecure. To move passwords to the new password storage location, you must create a password migration job which runs in the background. You can migrate passwords immediately after changing the storage location or at any later time, if needed.

To move existing passwords to a new storage location:

  1. Open the administrative portal from the account name menu.
  2. Click Settings > Resources.
  3. Select Password Storage from the list of settings.
  4. Click Migrate Passwords to create a password migration job.

Specify the email address where you want to receive notification of the migration results, then click Yes.

After you start the job, you can view the status and results of the job by clicking View Migration Job Status and Reports or wait to receive email notification that migration is complete. The email notification will provide a link to the job history. You can then click the link in the email to see details about the migration results. Because job history reports can list details for different types of jobs, you can use the Search field to filter the jobs displayed.
