Powertech


Password Self Help

Version: 3.001

Security Scan

Version: 3.4.0
  • Reporting of FTP Security Vulnerabilities. FTP represents a significant risk to any server that has no security configured, or that relies on legacy restrictions such as menus and limited capabilities. Security Scan now allows you to identify the number of user profiles with FTP access potential, and review HelpSystems' recommendations for addressing FTP security vulnerabilities.

Power Admin

Version: 2.06
  • Active Directory integration. Power Admin now allows you to import Active Directory data and use that data to create new People in Power Admin, or apply the data to existing People. Once populated, the Active Directory data can be linked with Power Admin and synchronized using periodic checks against the Active Directory server, whereupon updates to Active Directory entries will be automatically reflected in Power Admin's People definitions. See Integrating Power Admin with Active Directory.
  • Improved automation support. Operational Resources (such as event monitors) can now be disabled and enabled. After being disabled, they will not start again until they are deliberately enabled. This aids in preventing unwanted operations from occurring during backups or HA operations. A new command set, PPLMONSTS and PPMMONSTS, allows you to enable or disable Operation Resources programatically so that this function can be embedded in your HA or backup processes to prevent resources from starting at inopportune
    times. See Set Monitor Status (PPMMONSTS).
  • New Change User Profile command. A new command, PPMCHGPRF, allows you to change a subset of the profile settings for a set of *USRPRF objects on any system in your network. These settings are STATUS, PASSWORD and PWDEXP. Profiles may be selected by their attachment to People, Positions, Systems, etc. This allows you to set the password for all Profiles attached to a Person at one time, regardless of the number of systems on which those Profiles exist. See Change User Profile command.
  • New Delete User Profile command. A new command, PPMDLTPRF, allows you to delete *USRPRF objects from any system in your network. Profiles may be selected by their attachment to People, Positions, Systems, etc., or generically by name. See Delete User Profile command.
  • Enhanced Delete Person command. The Delete Person (PPMDLTPSN) command has been enhanced to support post-processing of the attached *USRPRF objects when a Person is deleted. You can delete or disable the attached *USRPRF objects. See Delete Person panel.
  • Enhanced Profile Activity Report. A history date range has been added to the Profile Activity command (PPMPRFACT) so that you can limit the output of historical information to a time period of interest. See Profile Activity Report panel.
  • New Power Admin APIs. Several APIs have been provided to allow you to interact with PowerAdmin from within your own applications (see Power Admin APIs):
    • Retrieve System definition
    • Change System definition
    • List Systems to user space
    • Retrieve Template definition
    • List Template Allowed Systems
    • Determine if a System is allowed to use a Template
    • List Template Profile settings to user space
    • Retrieve Company definition
    • List Companies to user space
    • Retrieve Department definition
    • List Departments to user space

    • List Systems
    • Retrieve Template Definition
    • List Resolved Template Profile Settings
    • List Template System Allowances
    • Can System Use Template
    • List Template Profile Settings
Version: 2.07
  • Incomplete audits are no longer caused by the following:
    • Audits for systems that do not contain the software that the audit refers to
    • Audits that include auditing of the Management System
  • A help typo in the PPMSYNCPSN command description has been fixed.
