What is a Secret Template?

  • A template is used to define the format and content of a secret (for example, a password).
  • Secret Server knows about 50 templates.
  • Additional templates can be generated by the user.

What does a Template look like?

  • A template can have a connection to a launcher.
  • The launcher allows to use the password (Secret) or the account to connect to a server:
  • Another type of template, for example, can be a web password:
  • The web password then uses the Web Password Filler as a launcher.
  • This means that you can use this secret to automatically log on to a specific website on the Internet.
