Configure PMC to Connect to the Policy Editor

Configure PMC to allow the Privilege Management MMC snap-in to communicate with the PMC services.

  1. Click Administration > Settings > Remote Access Settings from the top menu.
  1. Check the Enable remote MMC client access box. Generate a new GUID and enter it here. Use the same GUID when you configure the MMC. This is the MMC Client ID in the MMC. There are many ways to generate a GUID; for example, you can use a PowerShell cmdlet:

The MMC Client ID GUID should match the GUID you'll enter in the MMC connection. The API Access ID GUID is used in conjunction with the API, if required.

  1. Generate a new GUID for the API Access ID. Check the Enable Remove API Access box. Paste the new GUID into the API Access ID field. The API Key is automatically generated. You can click New to regenerate the API key, if required. This GUID is required if you want to use the PowerShell API.


  1. Click Save Changes.

Once you have configured PMC, you must configure the Privilege Management MMC PMC snap-in to communicate with it.
