What is Heartbeat?

  • Secret Server checks a password to see if it is correct.
    This is done with the so-called Heartbeat.

Why is it important?

  • It is very important that the passwords in your Vault are up to date.
  • The Heartbeat runs automatically on a regular basis.
  • Secret Server can inform you if a Heartbeat fails.
    A Heatbeat could fail if someone changes a password manually and does not add it to Secret Server.
