Editing Password Details

Locating the Password:

Navigate to Secrets Section: Start by accessing the 'Secrets' section of the Akeyless application. This area is specifically designed to store and organize your secrets and passwords.

Viewing Saved Secrets: In this section, you will find a comprehensive list of all your saved items, including passwords, secret notes, and other sensitive data.

Understanding the Layout: Familiarize yourself with the layout, noting how the secrets are categorized or arranged, which might be alphabetically, by date modified, or by type.

Access Quick Action Menu:

Identifying the Specific Password: Scroll through your list of secrets and locate the specific password you wish to edit.

Revealing the Menu: Next to the identified password, you'll see a three dots icon (often represented as '⋮'). This icon signifies more options or actions related to the password.

Accessing the Menu: Click on this icon to reveal a dropdown menu, commonly referred to as the 'quick action menu', which contains several options for managing the selected password.

Initiate Edit Mode:

Selecting Edit Option: In the quick action menu, look for and select the 'Edit' option. This choice will transition the interface into an editable mode for the selected password.

Understanding Edit Mode: In edit mode, the fields that were previously static will now become interactive, allowing you to make changes.

Observe Edit Mode Transition:

Recognizing Interface Changes: Notice that the 'Edit' option, once selected, will be replaced with a 'Save' option. This is typically located at the top right part of the screen.

Indicator of Readiness: The appearance of the 'Save' button is an indication that the application is now in edit mode and is ready to accept and apply your changes.

Make Desired Changes:

Editing Fields: You can now modify the password's information. This may include changing the password itself, updating the username, altering the description, or adjusting associated URLs.

Utilizing Advanced Options: Depending on the nature of your password, you might also have advanced options like setting expiration dates, changing sharing settings, or updating security notes.

Apply Changes:

Reviewing Changes: Before saving, take a moment to review the changes you’ve made. Ensure that all modifications are accurate and as intended.
