JDisc Discovery integrates with Thycotic’s SecretServer

Dear JDisc users,

just recently, we have added support for the CyberArk solution for managing accounts and passwords within your enterprise. Due to customer requests, we have integrated the Thycotic second password management tool. Your passwords are no longer stored within JDisc Discovery’s database but stay in the Thycotic SecretServer. JDisc Discovery only requests the passwords from the SecretServer via its API when needed for scanning devices.

In order to use the integration, you need to configure a user within your SecretServer to allow API access. Once that is done, you just need to configure the Thycotic server together with the user in JDisc Discovery.

Once you have selected this menu item, a new dialog lists all so far configured Thycotic SecretServer connections and lets you add new connections.

Once the connection is configured, you might select a password manager account instead of entering the credentials. Simply click on the link within the Managed Passwords section. That’ll open a new dialog which then lists all configured password managers together with and their folders. Selecting a folder lists all passwords which are accessible within this folder.

JDisc Discovery queries the Thycotic SecretServer whenever it needs the current username or password for device scans.

We hope you like this new feature!


P.S.: We are also working on integrating Microsoft LAPS. The implementation is nearly finished and will be released in the coming weeks!
