The Thycotic integration enables Axonius to securely pull privileged credentials from the Thycotic Secret Server. The integration ensures that privileged credentials are secured in the Thycotic Secret Server, rotated to meet company guidelines, and meet complexity requirements.

NOTE

This integration has only been tested and supported with version 10.7. Please contact Axonius Support if you have a different version and it is not functioning as expected.

Description of Product Integration

Axonius uses the Secret Server REST API 10.7 to fetch credentials from the Thycotic Secret Server.
Axonius authenticates to Thycotic Secret Server using bearer token authentication.

The integration supports both an on-premise Thycotics Secret Server and a cloud instance of Thycotic Secret Server.

The credentials are only fetched by Axonius when:

  • Creating a new adapter connection
  • Updating an existing adapter connection
  • Running an enforcement set
  • Fetching asset information for adapters during discovery cycles

Axonius does not store the credentials anywhere and deletes any trace of credentials.


To enable fetching credentials from your Thycotic Secret Server, you need to:

  1. Install and configure Thycotic Secret Server version 10.7 or use the Cloud instance of Thycotic Secret Server.
  2. Enable and configure the Enterprise Password Management Settings in Axonius, under the Global Settings.
  3. Configure adapter connection credential to fetch passwords from Thycotic Secret Server.
