LAPS Web Dashboard

The Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) Web Dashboard displays LAPS compliance. The dashboard can help you to quickly determine if passwords are stored using Microsoft's LAPS tool, which is designed to help organizations store Local Administrator passwords securely without impeding the required access.
