Managing Vaults in Password Manager

Passly has an integrated Password Manager that serves as your tenants built in secure storage for all infrastructure and personal passwords.

Password Manager uses AES256 to keep your data securely stored in Azure where it can be accessed from anywhere you need. 


Vaults are the container you use to store Passwords. You can create a Vault in an organization so that users may store shared passwords with your team.

Vaults use Directory Manager > Groups - Security groups for the permissions in Password Manager. Each user will need to be added to the group in order to receive Password Manager access. The groups can be used to provide different levels of access.

Vaults use Password Policies that can be managed & created for each Vault you use. See this guide for more information.
