Article Summary

This document provides a step-by-step guide on how to create, edit, clone, and reprocess access groups in Task Manager.

Path to access

  1. On senhasegura, in the upper-left corner, click the Grid Menu, represented by the nine squares, and select Task Manager.
  2. In the side menu, select Settings > Access groups.

Create an access group

To create an access group that will limit the tasks that users will be able to interact with in Task Manager, follow the steps below:

  1. In the upper-right corner of the Access group screen, click the View actions menu, represented by the three vertical dots icon, and select New.

  2. On the Access group registration screen:

    1. Access group name*: enter a human-readable name for the registered access group.
    2. Enabled*: check Yes or No to determine whether the group will be active or inactive.
    3. Description: write a description for this access group.
    Info

    Synced users will have their permissions overwritten if synchronization is on. Check their synchronization groups for changes.

    1. In the Settings tab:

      1. Requires reason to run task: check the checkbox to require the requester to provide a reason for the task execution.
      2. Requires approval to run task: check the checkbox to demand that task execution only occurs upon approval.
      3. Approvals required to run: enter a number to indicate the minimum number of approvals required for the requested task execution. This field is enabled only if the Requires approval to run task field is checked.
      4. Disapprovals required to cancel: enter a number to indicate the minimum number of rejections required for the requested task execution not to occur. This field is enabled only if the Requires approval to run task field is checked.
      5. Approval in levels: check the checkbox to require the request approval to be done at multiple levels.
      6. User can download the task resulting files: check the checkbox to enable users in the access group to download resulting task files.
      7. User must provide a reason for downloading files resulting by the task: check the checkbox to require users to provide a reason for downloading the resulting task files.
      8. Governance ID required when justifying?*: check Yes or No to define whether users should provide a governance code when justifying the task execution request.
      9. Always add user manager to approvers?*: check Yes or No to define whether the user's manager should always be added to the approvers.
      Info

      The fields User can download the task resulting files, User must provide a reason for downloading files resulting by the task, and Always add user manager to approvers?* will be removed in future versions.

    2. In the Criteria tab:

      1. Device (comma separated): enter the devices, separated by commas, where the task will be executed.
      2. Environments*: use the checkboxes to select the environments where the task will be executed.
      3. Systems*: use the checkboxes to select the systems where the task will be executed.
    3. In the Users tab:

      1. Users +: click the plus icon to open the System users screen, select the users to be added to the access group, and click Add.
      Info

      Users who are in more than one access group will have the settings applied from the most restrictive group.

    4. In the Approvers tab:

      1. Approvers +: click the plus icon to open the Approvers screen, select the approvers to be added to the access group, and click Add.
      Attention

      If you have chosen multi-level approval for this access group, after adding at least two approvers, you must define the approval level for each one in the Level column. The chosen level indicates the approval stage at which each approver will be notified after the task execution request.

      Info

      The approver user must have the minimum PAM Operator profile to access the approval workflow screen.

      Info

      The items with an asterisk are mandatory.

  3. Click Save.

A pop-up window with the message “Success. Data saved successfully!” confirms the action.

Attention

senhasegura works with permission levels. If the user added to the Task Manager access group is in another group with stricter restrictions, they may be unable to view information within the module.


Clone an access group

When cloning an access group, you inherit the settings from the selected group, thus eliminating the need to manually configure a new group.

Requirements

  • An access group registered in Task Manager. For more information, access the Create an access group section of this document.

To clone an access group in Task Manager, follow the steps below:

  1. In the list displayed on the Access group screen, identify the access group you want to clone or use the filters to search for it.

  2. In the Action column, click the three vertical dots icon and select Clone, represented by the two paper sheets icon.

  3. In the Confirmation pop-up window, you’ll view a message similar to the one below:
    “Are you sure you want to generate a copy of this register?”

  4. Click Yes to confirm.

The pop-up message “Success. Data saved successfully!” confirms the action.

In the list on the Access groups screen, the new access group will be displayed with the same name as the original group, followed by the word (copy) within parentheses, along with its identifier code. For example, if you cloned an access group named My group, the new cloned group might be named My group (copy 25).


Edit an access group

Requirements

  • An access group registered in Task Manager. For more information, access the Create an access group section of this document.

To edit an access group registered in Task Manager, follow the steps below:

  1. In the list displayed on the Access group screen, identify the access group you want to edit or use the filters to search for it.
  2. In the Action column, click Edit, represented by the paper and pencil icon.
  3. On the Access group registration screen, make the necessary changes.
  4. Click Save.

A pop-up window with the message “Success. Data saved successfully!” confirms the action.


Reprocess groups

Group reprocessing is the manual process of updating configurations in all access groups registered in the senhasegura database. This feature is useful when you make changes to the settings of an access group and want to apply them immediately.

Attention

Since group reprocessing updates the accesses according to the new configurations registered, if a user is removed from any group or added to groups with stricter restrictions, they may lose access to credentials.

Requirements

  • An access group registered in Task Manager. For more information, access the Create an access group section of this document.

To reprocess access groups registered in Task Manager, follow the steps below:

  1. In the bottom-right corner of the Access groups screen, click Reprocess groups.
  2. In the Confirmation pop-up window, you’ll view a message similar to the one below:
    “Attention: When reprocessing the groups some users may lose access to the credentials.
    Are you sure you want to continue?”
Info

This action may take a few seconds depending on the number of access groups and users registered in each group.

  1. Click Yes to confirm.

A pop-up window with the message “Success. Data saved successfully!” confirms the action.
