Understanding account basics
Individual accounts can be viewed by clicking Resources then Accounts. The Accounts page lists all of the accounts you have added for managing systems, domains, databases, and services.
You can navigate between different account types by selecting the appropriate set filter. For example, the default account list displays all of the Local Accounts you use to access systems such as servers, workstations, and network devices.
You can select another filter to see information about a different set of accounts. The information displayed is the same as the information you see under Accounts when you view the details for a specific system, domain, or database.
You can also manage accounts by organizing them into custom groups. Organizing accounts into logical account sets simplifies management tasks and reporting for set members.
The Accounts page also provides quick access to the Multiplexed Accounts you create for automating password rotation and managing Windows services and scheduled tasks.
If you are a member of a role with the appropriate privilege service rights, you can view, modify, or delete individual accounts or collections of accounts. For more information about performing account-specific tasks, see the following topics:
