Starting password management

Because automatic password rotation requires some preparation—to add and test the sub-accounts, to create the multiplexed account for the sub-accounts, and to link the multiplexed account to the appropriate service—you might start password management some time after adding or updating a service.

Although a task running in the background will periodically check for services to manage, you can also attempt to start password management immediately on-demand by selecting the Push Password Management action.

To start password management immediately:

  1. In the Admin Portal, click Resources, then click Services to display the list of services and scheduled tasks.
  2. Select a service to display the Actions menu.
  3. Select Push Password Management.
  4. Click Yes to confirm that you want to update the password immediately.

    If there are time restrictions for restarting the service that are in effect when you are attempting to start password management, you are prompted to confirm restarting the service.

  5. Click Yes to continue.

  6. Click Close.
