In Passwork 6.3, we have implemented numerous changes that significantly improve organization management efficiency, provide more flexible user permission settings, and increase security:
- Administrative rights
- Hidden vaults
- Improved private vaults
- Improved settings interface
Available with the Advanced license
Now there is no need to make users administrators in order to grant them specific administrative rights. This option is a response to one of the most frequent requests from our customers.
Administrators can grant only those rights or permissions that are necessary for users to fulfill their duties and flexibly customize access to settings sections and manage Passwork. For instance, you can grant employees the right to create and edit new users, view the history of user activity, track settings changes, while restricting access to organization vaults and System settings.
You can configure additional rights on the Administrative rights tab in User management. There are four settings sections to flexibly customize Passwork for your business:
In this section, you can grant users access rights to manage all existing and new organization vaults, view the history of actions with settings and users, access license info and upload license keys, view and modify the parameters of SSO settings and Background tasks.
In this section, you can grant users access rights to view and modify User management parameters. This includes performing any necessary actions with users and roles, such as creating, deleting, and editing users, changing their authorization type and sending invitations.
In this section of settings, you can grant users the right to view and modify specific groups of System settings.
In this section, you can grant users the right to view and modify LDAP parameters which include adding and deleting servers, registering new users, managing group lists, viewing and configuring synchronization settings.
The event of changing user administrative rights has been added to the Activity log. All changes are now recorded in the Activity log, that includes the users who initiated such changes as well as each setting that was modified with its previous and current values.
Users with additional administrative rights are marked with a special icon next to their user status.
Some items remain unavailable until the necessary settings have been activated. When hovering your cursor over such items, a tooltip with information regarding dependent settings will be displayed.
In the previous versions of Passwork only organization administrators were able to hide vaults. Also, only organization vaults could be hidden. In this new version, all users can hide any vaults. Hiding makes vaults invisible only to the users who choose to do it and does not affect others.
Hidden vault management is now carried out in a new window, which is available directly from the list of vaults. You can view the list of all available vaults and customize their visibility there.
Displaying private vaults in User management
Besides hiding private vaults, employees with User management access can now see all vaults which they administer (including private vaults). The new feature which makes it possible to add users to private vaults has also been added to User management.
Logging of events in private vaults
Private vault administrators can view all events related to their vaults in the Activity log.
- Fixed an issue which prevented users from changing their temporary master password
- Fixed an issue which prevented users from setting the minimum length for authorization and master passwords
