Updated On:


CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM)


Is it possible to change the reasons in the dropdown of a password view request?


Privileged Access Manager 3.4.x, 4.0.x


As this is a customization, go to Configuration > Database and save the database prior to making the changes.

In order to change the severity reasons, you need to use the PAM CLI. An example of the command is below.
> capam_command capam= adminUserID=super cmdName=setSystemProperty propertyName=ViewPasswordReasons "propertyValues=Reason 1|Reason 2|Reason 3"
Enter password:

After using the command, it will display something similar to this.
