User Account Validity For Portal Activation

Temporary user account validity time specifies the maximum time that an activated local user account can be used starting from the activation time. In the available Privilege Manager Portal, temporary user account validity settings are configured in the ServiceDesk\TemporaryAccountValidityTimes.xml file located on the Privilege Manager Portal website.

Items root element

XML file contains Items elements where you can specify the following settings:

  • Autoselect: Setting this value to 'false' prevents any items from being automatically selected and therefore the user will need to select the desired items. If the value is 'true' or not specified, the item will be automatically selected following these rules:
    • If only one item available to user, it will be automatically selected
    • If multiple items are available to the user and one of the items has 'Selected' set to 'true', it will be automatically selected
    • If multiple items are available to the user and no item with 'Selected' set to 'true' is available, the first item will be automatically selected

Item elements

Item elements represent the available items. 

Item element settings:

  • Value: Actual value for when the item is selected. Allowed values are 0 to 9. Values are described below. (required)
