Unlimited Administration mode, or ‘Break the Glass’, is an emergency feature designed to allow an administrator access to all Secrets and Folders in their Secret Server instance without explicit permission.
Use this feature when emergency access is needed to a Secret—a firecall password—or when company policies require administrators to have access to all information in the system. By using Role Based Access Control (RBAC), the Unlimited Administration Mode can be set up so that two people must agree before the feature can be used.
Unlimited Administrator Mode is audited within the system and an automatic email alert can be sent through Event Subscriptions whenever the feature is accessed.
