This is one of the most important features of a PAM solution and it is missing in this product.

Enterprises rely on PAM for storing hundreds/thousands of privileged credentials and scheduled jobs and check out/check-in policies are configured for password rotation and passwords are rotated frequently.

If a device or a target account is deleted accidentally, there is no option to restore the target accounts and passwords in PAM client or web interface. Restoring database from backups in this case would not be helpful, since the passwords of many other privileged/target accounts would have been rotated by then.

Support is also not able to restore these deleted credentials.

Many other competing PAM products seem to have this functionality that enables admins to restore deleted passwords from archives.
