CyberArk - View accounts
The Accounts page displays your accounts in a set of views that you can display, sort, and access quickly and easily. These multiple views enable you to display accounts according to predefined criteria, based on account and operation status.
You can also define customized views according to your own requirements and save them, so that you can display search results in one quick step. You can perform a variety of management tasks in each list of accounts, depending on your own permissions for accessing these accounts.
These different views, available at your fingertips, and the ability to manipulate entire lists, combined with the multiple actions that you can initiate on the same page increase usability and streamline account management, making it intuitive and efficient.
The selected view determines the accounts that are displayed in the Accounts List. You can display the following types of views:
