Configure password service attributes

In the Management Portal at Service Catalog, on the Attributes tab of the service page, configure password attributes to store a password. This allows actors in a service transaction to specify a password when requested.



Explanation and Tips

Value and Confirm Password

Specify a default value.

  • Passwords are seen as restricted information by default and are always masked with the icon Evil eye, irrespective of the permissions of your administrative role. At Transactions, restricted attributes are shown as [attributename]. Although you cannot see the attribute value, this still allows you to verify if the context or definition of the attribute is correct.
  • The value is limited to 2000 characters. Because passwords are encrypted, the clear-text value of a password can have a maximum of 743 characters in order for its encrypted form to fit the 2000 character limit.


When you insert password service attribute as a placeholder in actions, use the following options to retrieve its values:




Use the encrypted value of the password. In the Management Portal and Web Portal, the password is masked and shown as [attributename]. For example, use this placeholder in an Invoke Run Book action to provide the encrypted password to Ivanti Automation Run Books.


Resolve the description of the password, e.g. "This is the domain password".


Resolve the value of the password as clear text, e.g. "1234DomainPassword".
