A couple of features we’ve had for quite some time now is Time-Based Access to Passwords, or to Passwordstate itself. To start with, we’ll show you time-based access to Password Lists:
Time-Based Access to Password Lists
When applying permissions to a Password List, you will notice a tab called ‘Time Based Access’. By clicking on this tab you can set the access to expire automatically at a specific time, or by a certain number of days, hours and minutes into the future.
After you have set the expiry date for the access, a new icon will be shown in the ‘Expires’ column of the Password Lists Permission page:
The Passwordstate Windows Service checks every one minute if any access has expired, and removes permissions if appropriate.
Time-Based Access to Passwordstate
Another useful feature is to automatically remove or disable a user’s account in Passwordstate at a set time. The screen for configuring expiry of an account is similar to the one for Password Lists, except this time you can also choose to disable or delete the user’s account.
This feature is very useful if you have contractors working in your organization, or if you have an employee leaving at a known time.
