Onboard local Windows server accounts through Account discovery

A user with administrator-level privileges has access to all the accounts in an IT environment. Only such a user can pull and onboard accounts while an account discovery job is in progress. Such an account will be termed as a "Management account". Once a discovery job is launched through a management account, a scan is performed for accounts. If the 'onboard' feature is enabled, all the discovered accounts will get onboarded and the account password will be reset for security reasons.


  1. For configuring management account, log in to the system and select PAM from the product navigator.
  2. Go to Setup→ Account Defaults → Add Account Default → Asset Category=Select from drop-down list,  Asset Type=Select type of asset , Account role=Management, Username=Specify the username, Domain=Specify the domain.
  3. Go to Manage → Account Discovery → Add Account Discovery.
  4. Set Job Title=Windows Server Discovery,  Asset Category=Operating System, Asset Type=Windows Server.
  5. Set Schedule type and time → Select 'Yes' for 'Onboard'.
  6. Click on Save.
  7. If you want to start account discovery immediately, click on Save+Run Now.
