Xton Access Manager Product Update 2.3.201902032213
Today we released new update to the Xton Privileged Access Manager software. Highlights of this update include the option to repeat failed jobs during time window after the job failed, password reset (or any other job execution) policy triggered after request expiration and support for password reset for non-OpenLDAP compliant user directories. Please read details of the update below:
Added support for automatic re-execution of failed periodic jobs
This update adds the option to repeat failed periodic, weekly or monthly jobs during a configurable time after the failure following a configurable interval schedule. This option improves the chances to reach computers that are often appear outside of the corporate network, offline or shutdown frequently to reset password, check password status, manage local administrators group or maintain valid service credentials.
The configuration for this option is driven by two system parameters both of which allow time interval specifications in seconds, minutes, hours or days: Rerun Failed Job Window defines for how long the job should be repeated and Rerun Failed Job Interval defines how frequently the fall back job should be scheduled.
Added task execution policy to trigger a job at the time of request expiration
This update adds a task execution policy to trigger a job after expiration of active request. This policy might be useful to reset password on the remote system after requested time window for this job is expired. Note that XTAM also includes the policy to execute job after checking-in the record. This new policy allows job scheduling without record checkout enabling several users to work with the remote system simultaneously
Added password reset support for non-OpenLDAP compliant user directories
This update add the option to configure custom password attribute to support password reset for non-OpenLDAP compliant user directories. Use custom field PasswordAttribute (type: String, Display Name: Password Attribute) in LDAP Server record type to define LDAP password attribute relevant to this specific user directory server.
