Checking out Secrets

Secrets with Change Password on Checkin configured now have the "Change Password Now" functionality available. This will enable the standard functionality of a password change, and the secret will also complete the automatic password change on checking in. This is to allow maintenance and testing of secrets protected in this manner, and a pending password change must be completed before the check-in process is allowed to begin in order to maintain a secure order of operations.

Each secret must be individually set to require check out:

  1. From the Secret View page, click the Security tab to modify a secret's Check Out setting.

  2. You must configure RPC before Change Password on Check in can be set.

  3. Enable Require Check Out to force users to check out the secret before gaining access.

  4. Enable Change Password on Check In to have the password change after the secret is checked in.
