Review Platforms Settings in Bomgar Vault

The Platforms tab lists all of the systems Vault can connect to and allows you to add and to validate your access to those systems. Bomgar Vault comes with a number of common platforms and connectors preconfigured. Before creating custom platforms, review the default platforms listing to see if they meet your needs.

Administration > Settings

Go to Administration > Settings > Platforms.

 

Filter Platforms

Administration > Settings > Platforms > Filter Platforms

Filter the platforms based on the type of system for which you wish to make a connection. You can refresh the list to show exactly what you need, such as particular applications, services that you need to restart, databases, or operating systems.

The dropdown platform search list presents the following system types by which you can filter, streamlining the platform listing:

  • Application
  • Database

  • Network
