What To Do

You can configure SafeGuard Enterprise to use a different Credential Provider than the Windows Credential Provider while keeping the SSO functionality to the users keyring. Credential Provider Wrapping templates for supported Credential Providers can be downloaded from the link in this article.

The template must be imported and deployed to endpoints by using the Credential Provider policy setting:

  • Click Import template and browse for the template file. The imported template and its content is displayed in the Credential Provider multiline field and set as policy.



  •  To remove a template click Clear template.

The following Credential Providers templates can be imported in the SafeGuard Management Center. Click the link to download:

Note: Do not edit the provided template files. If the XML structure of these files is changed, the settings may not be recognized on the endpoint and the default Windows Credential Provider may be used instead.
