This release introduces DevOps support in Password Manager Pro with new plugins for Jenkins and Ansible pipelines. Additionally, provisions to perform password resets for SSH-based resources through custom command inputs have also been added amid other new features and enhancements.
New Features & Enhancements
- Plugins for DevOps Containers – Jenkins and Ansible
The Password Manager Pro plugins developed for credential management in Jenkins and Ansible help improve security in organizations’ DevOps pipeline. The plugins ensure that required credentials are retrieved securely from Password Manager Pro’s vault every time when an automation schedule is run through the tools, instead of being embedded in plain text within script files. Moreover, with the credentials stored in Password Manager Pro, you can also enforce regular rotation and automatic update of the new password in the respective remote device.
- Build Password Reset Workflows with SSH Commands
Now extend Password Manager Pro’s reset provisions to support remote password changes for SSH-based resources in your environment without the need for a CLI terminal. Quickly build command workflows using built-in or customized SSH sets and map them to respective SSH device accounts to execute password resets in a simple and effective manner. This new addition to Password Manager Pro’s reset capabilities enables you to enforce automatic password updates for resource types that are not supported out-of-the-box by the application.
- Two-factor Authentication Support
From v9900 onwards, Password Manager Pro readily integrates with the following services to provide two-factor authentication support for application login.
- Microsoft Authenticator
- Okta Verify
- RESTful API Updates
- New API to get audit details.
- Resource and account creation APIs enhanced to include password policy association.
- Resource and account edit APIs enhanced to include password policy association.
- From v9200 till v9803, passwords checked out under a time-sensitive access request did not get checked back in automatically upon access expiration if a Password Manager Pro server restart took place in between. This has been fixed.
- From v9802 till v9803, users could not raise password access requests when they and the environment in which Password Manager Pro server was installed were in different time zones. This has been fixed.
- [MSP Edition] From v9802 till v9803, while configuring access control for a resource in a particular client organization, the user groups list in the configuration window also displayed the user groups that belonged to other client organizations. This has been fixed.
