Testing the AAM installation

Updated on October 19, 2022

Ensure that the Application Access Manager (AAM) is properly configured in CyberArk for a client, by logging into the CyberArk server as an administrator.

The CyberArk integration uses AAM to retrieve credentials. This CyberArk software installs as a service on each client computer and handles all communication between the client computer and CyberArk. Refer to the CyberArk Credential Provider and ASCP Implementation Guide for information about the installation on clients.

After your installation is complete, AAM has been installed, and you have properly configured the CyberArk Vault, test your the CyberArk installation.

  1. Open the PrivateArk application.
  2. In the Servers list, select Vault.
  3. Log on to the Server Vault when prompted.
  4. Select Tools > Administrative Tools > User and Groups.
  5. In the Users and Groups dialog box, expand the application node.
  6. Click the node named Prov_{ComputerName}. This node is referred to as the provider.
  7. Ensure that user rights are selected for Audit users and Add/Updates users.
What to do next: If properly set up, you can close PrivateArk. If not, refer to CyberArk documentation to resolve any issues.
