iDash Workload Automation for CA 7

Issue/Introduction

We are being asked to enter all the accounts associated with our applications into a password vault. This would include any accounts that are used for the install or execution of the application. The requirement of the vault would be to rotate the account password every X number of days. The only account that I can think of that is hard coded is the one that authenticates to Active Directory that is entered into the admin tool. Are the any other accounts where the password would be stored in the database or inside the application. Note that these do not include the iDash accounts like idashAdm, only accounts that would be created as Oracle accounts or in Active Directory. I believe when we install / upgrade there is one account that requires the password to be entered.
