uCMDB to support direct dynamic credential updates

0 Votes

The uCMDB product to allow for the programmatic management of dynamically updated credentials. The requirement is for uCMDB to support direct programmatic credential retrieval for all distributed authentication-based accounts configured within the application using the Hashi Vault platform and related native APIs. For example, the uCMDB can automatically update the credentials for any configured account provisioned securely  outside of a distributed authentication source without user intervention. LDAP, AD, etc.

We would like to utilize Hashivault architecture with uCMDB users and discovery protocols users. A hash password that is dynamically updated on a schedule (or random) and injected into uCMDB for authentication. If this is already possible please share experience.

https://www.hashicopr.com/resources/adopting-hashicorp-vault has some concepts.

I have no experience with HashiVault, but Cyberark works fine

Thanks a ton. We are running an older version. Unfortunately, did not think to look within Integrations sections of the documentation within the latest release. Kind of figured this would be under Administration or Security.

Again thank you very much for your assistance.
