As iOS users may have noticed, our Secret Server app received an upgrade with the recent release of iOS 7. The most noticeable sign the app was upgraded is a fresh user interface. However, there are a few other aspects of the latest update that are worth highlighting.
View & Edit Restricted Secrets
Previously, users could not view restricted Secrets from the mobile app. Now, Secrets that have the advanced security settings Require Comment, Require Approval and CheckOut are also accessible from your mobile device.
When viewed through the mobile app, Secrets that require a comment will receive an audit entry called WEBSERVICEVIEWCOMMENT to help differentiate comments in the audit log:
These restricted Secrets will not be cached. Therefore, a user must re-enter information after a 5-minute period (for Require Comment) or when the approval period ends (for Require Approval and CheckOut).
If you don’t yet use the mobile app and/or would like more information, please see the following articles in our Knowledge Base:
