As a system administrator, you configure CA Privileged Access Manager to provision privileged account access to your service desk solution. CA Privileged Access Manager uses CA Normalized Integration Management behind the scenes to integrate with third-party help desk solutions.
CA Privileged Access Manager administrators create Password View Polices to apply to Accounts. The Password View Policy can use a Service Desk Integration to validate access with a service desk ticket number. When users request to view the password of a privileged help desk account, they provide a ticket number for validation. The following IT Service Management products have password update or view capabilities:

CA Privileged Access Manager includes a pre-existing Device, two Applications, and two Accounts for CA Normalized Integration Management (CA NIM).
