Keeper Record setup for Unix passwd rotation
To rotate Unix passwords, use the
rotatecommand in Commander. Pass the command a record title or UID (or use
--matchwith a regular expression to rotate several records at once)
rotate "My Azure Credentials" --plugin unix
The plugin can be supplied to the command as shown here, or added to a record field (see options above). Adding the plugin type to the record makes it possible to rotate several records at once with different plugins.
