Devices Glossary

Through the Scan & Discovery glossaries, you can automate the process of importing devices and credentials found in discoveries. This is because it is possible to predefine in the glossaries information such as site, type, manufacturer and device model, as well as set default and privileged credential type, automatic password exchange and connectivity.

This way, senhasegura automatically recognizes devices against the identification string defined in the glossary and performs imports if this option is enabled in the discovery settings.

Create a device glossary

Go to Discovery ➔ Settings ➔ Device Glossary

In this screen, you can view the glossaries created along with a range of information such as identification pattern, default password type, privileged password type, and enabled or unselected password change.

In the Report Action Button click on New Glossary button.
