1. Use PowerShell to Configure Customized Password Changing in Secret Server

In Secret Server, the ability to write Custom PowerShell scripting for remote password changing and Heartbeat gives you the ultimate ability to craft your own password changers with the flexibility to target any API. This scripting capability allows you to check password health and remotely change passwords in even the most complex infrastructure environment.

How does it work? As a Secret Server admin, you can upload a custom PowerShell script that can be used to change a password or verify a password on any system that has an API that can be scripted with PowerShell. This greatly expands Secret Server’s password management capabilities to the supported platforms using standard Microsoft tooling, so virtually any platform can be securely managed using custom PowerShell scripts. For example, a Secret Server Admin could build a script that changes a password on a cloud platform using the native API, upload it into the secure Secret Server vault and then manage passwords on that end-point going forward. There’s no limit to the possibilities of secure password management with Custom PowerShell scripting.

For heavy UNIX / Linux environments, use custom scripting in Secret Server to manage passwords across all sensitive endpoints. Secret Server administrators can upload a custom SSH script that will run after a password is changed. This scripting module can also be used to replace stale passwords in configuration files and perform other custom actions on UNIX / Linux systems after a password is changed. Custom SSH scripting means almost any scenario can be supported for updating dependent files or applications in UNIX / Linux environments. This scripting capability comes in handy for mixed infrastructure environments or if your infrastructure is being rebuilt with varying technologies. Regardless of the complexity, Secret Server arms you with the scripting and customization you need to fully control and manage sensitive privileged credentials regardless of the environment.
