Launch Away-Multiple Launcher Sneak Peek

17 12 2013

One of the most popular features in Secret Server is the Launcher. With one click, Secret Server can launch and authenticate to RDP, PuTTY or a website. You can also launch a custom executable with Secret Server and pass in command-line arguments that reference Secret values. Additionally, the Windows Form Filler can be used to auto-fill credentials for programs that cannot launch with command-line arguments.

Using the Launcher is easy. First, go to the Secret that you want to use. Then, click the Launcher icon to initiate the session directly from your computer. This way, as long as an employee can access Secret Server, they can get their work done – a convenient feature for anyone working offsite.

With the next product release, Secret Server will allow users to assign multiple launchers to a single Secret. This is valuable when one set of credentials is used for multiple access points. For example, you could launch an RDP session with an Active Directory account, then, using the same credentials you could launch a PuTTY session.

You will be able to add as many Launchers as you would like to a Secret, including custom Launchers. Any user with access to the Secret will be able to use all of the configured Launchers. Add and configure new Launchers to a Secret at the Secret Template level, as shown below.
