    Hi All,

    Could you please let me know if there is an automated check which will alert  process controller about the credentials that are going to expire soon, say in next 2 days?

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Sajit - there is no out-of-the-box automated check/alert, but you could easily create a simple process to produce a list of credential expiry dates. This process could then be scheduled as a regular housekeeping activity, for example every Monday morning the process mails the list to the control team so that they know which credentials will expire in the coming week.

    Further still, the process could actually test the viability of the credentials by launching and logging into the applications, and then produce a report on the results.

    Some clients even go so far as have a process to generate new passwords and update credentials automatically.
