Viewing database accounts and account activity

In most cases, you add the database account for connecting to a database when you initially add the database to the Privileged Access Service. From the list of Accounts for a database, you can then view the following information:

  • User Name indicates the name the account uses to access the database.
  • Last reset specifies the date and time the database account password was last reset.
  • Checkouts specifies the number of password checkouts for the database account.
  • Last Verify Result indicates the result of the most recent password check for an account. If the password stored by the Privileged Access Service is no longer valid, the column displays Failed. If the state of the password cannot be determined—for example, because the account is an unmanaged account—the column displays Unknown.
  • Last Verify displays the date and time of the last password verification.
  • Managed displays a check mark if the password for the account is managed through the Privileged Access Service.

From the list of database accounts for a specific database, you can add, modify, or delete the accounts used to access that database.

When you are viewing the accounts for a database, you can also select any account in the list, then click the Actions menu to check out the password for the account, update the password stored in the Privileged Access Service for the account, or delete the account.

Viewing all database accounts

You can view the accounts that have been added for individual databases from the database details. To see a list of all database accounts for all databases in the Privileged Access Service, you can click Resources, then click Accounts and select Database Accounts.

From the Database Accounts list, you can search for database accounts across all databases. You can also select an individual account for any database to perform account-related actions—such as check out an account password or update the account’s stored password. The information displayed on the Database Accounts list is the same as the information displayed for accounts when you are viewing the details for a specific database.
