Improved Password Manager Integrations

Dear JDisc friends,

we added a pretty cool improvement for our Delinea SecretServer integration. You might know that we can integrate several password managers:

  • CyberArk
  • Delinea (Thycotic) SecretServer
  • Passwordstate
  • Manage Engine PMP

With the integration, you will be able to select credentials from the password managers and use them when scanning devices. So far, the assignment was more a manual process. You selected accounts within the password managers and assigned them manually to devices, domains or AD OUs. However, most password managers have a machine, hostname or IP address field to identify the device that a credential belongs to.

And most of the password managers have API calls to search for a specific credential for a given hostname or IP address and you get a list of matching credentials as a return. We started to implement the hostname search feature for Delinea’s SecretServer first.

In some cases, customers do want to assign credentials only manually. Therefore, we made the new feature optional. Select the “determine individual device accounts” option to enable the new feature. In many cases, we determine the FQDN (like and customers might have configured the machine name within the password manager without the domain part (so only “testserver”). In this case a query for “” would fail. With the option “test hostname part of a FQDN for individual devices, JDisc Discovery will also strip the hostname from the FQDN and repeat the search.

We hope that you like this new feature…
