Share Folders

You can share multiple accounts at the same time by sharing a folder with Users and Groups. In addition to sharing accounts, you are also sharing the folder with well-defined privileges.

There are different folder management privileges and account management privileges in Securden. When you want to share a folder, you can select what privileges you want to grant to the users/groups with whom you want to share the folder.


When viewing the share settings of a sub-folder, the share permission settings will be displayed. You can turn inheritance of permissions On and Off as required from here.

Folder Management Privileges

  • 'View Folder Details' privilege allows the users/groups to simply view the folder properties. They are not allowed to modify anything.
  • 'Add Accounts to Folder' privilege allows the users/groups to view the folder properties as well as add accounts to the folder.
  • 'Add Sub Folder' privilege allows the users/groups to add a sub folder, view folder properties and add accounts to the folder.
  • 'Manage Folder' privilege grants all permissions - view, modify properties, share the folder with others and add accounts. Share Folders

Account Access / Management Privileges

  • 'Open Connection' allows launching RDP, SSH sessions with target machines, and auto-filling credentials for web applications without showing the underlying password in plain text in the GUI.
  • 'View' allows the user to view the details as well as the password.
  • 'Modify' allows editing the password.
  • 'Manage' grants all privileges including subsequent share permissions.
