Privilege Management for Mac 21.4 Release Notes

July 6, 2021

New Features and Enhancements:

  • Privilege Management for Mac now automatically allows root to request authorization rights that have the allow-root rule. Consequently, adding entries to the AlwaysAllowRootRights list in defendpoint.plist is only necessary in very rare cases.
  • User Request Management (URM) enables users to request access to applications via a ServiceNow integration in Privilege Management.

    The Privilege Management Cloud integration with ServiceNow automatically creates a workflow record based on what is configured as the ITIL record type in Privilege Management Cloud. A record of the request is stored in ServiceNow for tracking and auditing purposes.

    Access is then granted or denied based on the actions within ServiceNow.

Issues Resolved:

  • Resolved issue in which the auditing key for the IdP email was incorrect for authorization requests.

  • Privilege Management Policy Editor 21.5
