Add a new credential for an input

  1. On the Enterprise Security menu bar, select Configure > General and open Credential Management.
  2. Click New Credential to add a new user credential.
  3. Use the edit panel to add the username and password for the new credential.

  5. Select the Application for the credential.
  6. Click Save.

Edit an existing input credential

  1. On the Enterprise Security menu bar, select Configure > General and open Credential Management.
  2. In the Action column of a credential, select Edit.
  3. Use the editor to change the username, password, or application for the credential. You cannot change the realm after it has been applied to a credential. You must create a new credential to change the realm.
