This topic describes Safe configuration. It also describes how to set LDAP directory search parameters so that you can search for and add LDAP users as Safe members in a Safe.
Safe configuration overview
Authorized users can add Safes in the Vault using the PVWA. These Safes are created according to predefined properties in the Web Access Safe Templates parameters. This enables Vault administrators to make sure that all Safes created in the PVWA have the same properties. For more information, see Default Safe properties.
All Safes that are created in the PVWA are located in the same location as the user’s account in the Vault hierarchy.
For more information about creating Safes, see Add a Safe.
The PVWA can search LDAP directories for users to add as Safe members, according to the profile set for each directory.

In this example, the search looks for LDAP users whose names begin with the characters that are specified in the PVWA.
The search field under LDAP Search, Username, determines that the search will be based on the field that corresponds to the Username parameter in the LDAP directory profile.
