Time-Based Access to Passwords and Passwordstate

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┬áthe 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.
