Lockers- Overview

A locker is used to group related sensitive information, which is included in automation tasks in the form of credentials and shared with other users.

This enables separation of duties for credential management and consumption. Users with the following permissions can work with lockers:

  • Manage my lockers: This permission allows you to create and manage your own locker.
  • Administer ALL lockers: This permission allows you to view all the lockers and perform limited actions on them. This permission is available for AAE_Locker Admin role only

The roles and permissions related to locker management are:
  • Locker Owner: A locker owner can edit, view, and delete a locker, and can add or remove other owners.

  • Locker Manager: A locker manager has access to all the functions of a locker owner, but does not have permission to add owners, managers, or participants to the locker.

  • Locker Participants: A locker participant has access to view a locker and its participants, and can also add their own credentials to a locker. A locker participant can not access or view credentials created by other users.

  • Locker Consumers: Locker consumers have access to view a locker and input a credential attribute value (if the attribute is configured for user-input). When you select one or more user-defined roles, the users who have these selected roles become consumers of the locker.

My Lockers

My Lockers tab in Bots → Credentials shows the list of lockers that has been created by a user. A locker can only be created by an authorized user with Locker_Admin permission or a user having Manage my locker permission.

Note: Users can see lockers only if they have created them or if they are a member of that locker.
