Managing systems

Individual systems—such as servers, workstations, switches and routers—are listed on the Systems page. You can populate this list automatically for some systems by running discovery jobs. Discovery enables you to create a profile to identify the systems in which you are interested—such as Windows or UNIX computers—then scan the network for systems that match the criteria you have specified. You can also add systems without running discovery jobs by adding individual systems manually or by importing multiple systems at once using an import file.

You can also manage systems by organizing them into groups. Organizing systems into logical system sets simplifies management and reporting for set members.

If you are a member of a role with the appropriate privilege management rights, you can view, add, modify, or delete individual systems in the Systems list or collections of member systems in the Sets list. If you are the owner of a system or a system set because you added it to the Privileged Access Service, you can grant permissions to other users, groups, and roles to work with the system or system set you own.
