What Keywords cPassMan uses?


cPassMan is based on a Tree structure made of Folders. This permits to categorized all passwords you and the users have. It is possible to define as many folders level as wanted. Only Administrators and Managers car create, modify or delete a Folder. 


In each folder can be stored as many Items as possible. An Item contains at least a title and a password. Any one can create a new Item in the Group he/she has access to. Only the creator can modify or delete an Item (an Administrator or a Manager has also this right). Each Item can also include a description, a login, an url, several tags and a restriction list.


A Role permits to ease the deployment through all the users. For example, it can be “developper”, “manager”, “IT”, … For each Role, the Administrator can define what are the authorized Folders. So when creating a new user, it has just to be associated to one or several Roles. Depending on that, the user will only access to the Folders he/she is authorized.
