Perform automatic script execution after password rotation
Post-rotation scripts are user-defined code snippets that execute after a credential is rotated. Scripts can be attached to PAM records, and will execute on either the remote machine or on the gateway.

Post-Rotation scripts empower Keeper customers to manage and automate their IT administrative processes and tasks ranging from restarting a resource to notifying relevant parties on credential updates. Here are some of the use cases made possible with Keeper Post Rotation:
- Updating Access Control Lists (ACLs)
- After changes to a password or private key, it may be necessary to update the ACLs of files directories or servers as to not disrupt access. A post-execution script can automate this process and ensure that the procedures and/or users have the necessary permissions.
- Revoking old credentials
- After changes to a password or private key, old credentials may need to be revoked to prevent unauthorized access. A post-execution script can automate this process by revoking the old credentials and updating the user's access permissions.
- Notifying relevant parties on updated credentials
- Relevant parties such as IT administrators or security personnel should be notified on credentials changes. A post-execution script can automate this process by sending out notifications or alerts.
- Password or private key changes should be audited for compliance and security purposes. A post-execution script can automate this process by logging the change and any associated actions, such as ACL updates or notifications.

Upon successful rotation of credentials on a PAM record, Keeper executes the attached Post-Rotation scripts with parameters containing information on the involved records, credentials, and user.
