Remote Sessions without access to password credentials

Recommended Posts

Purpose:  This post outlines the process you need to follow, to grant someone access to the Remote Session Launcher, without them having the need to know the password.  An example could be you have a contractor coming on site, and you want them to connect to machines and perform work,but you do knot want them knowing the password they are using to connect.


If you are not familiar with how to set up the Remote Session Launcher, please see this in depth Forum Post - https://www.clickstudios.com.au/community/index.php?/topic/2110-how-to-set-up-the-remote-session-launcher-passwordstate-8/


There are three areas you'll need to attend to, to grant someone this type of access:


1. Under Hosts tab -> Hosts Home, grant your user access to the remote session Credential of your choice **Note this Credential will be linked to a password record, you should NOT grant them access to that record**



2. Grant the user access to the Folder of your choice, which has the machines added into it.  This will make the Folder and the machines visible in the Host tab for them, when they log into the system.  They should now be able to choose a host and click Launch, and they will gain access to the system without know thing password.

Is it possible to mass grant permission to multiple credentials or do you have to grant a permission for each single Linked Credential? 


For our PasswordState instance we would like to grant multiple users access to multiple servers, but to se this up for each linked credentials is very maintenance heavy, and we have to revise every linked credential every time we get a new member.
