Credentials window

The Credentials window enables you to view, create, edit, and delete credentials. You can access this window by selecting Settings > Setup > Credentials.

Credentials are information (such as IP address or host name, user name and password) that is stored on a target system (server or controller) and is used to connect to that specific system and to execute commands.

The Credentials window displays existing credentials in a table format. You can customize the table display by using the filtering and sorting features available for each column, as well as by rearranging the column order.

The Credentials table contains the following columns:

Displays the type of credential.
Name/IP Address
Displays the IP address for the credential.
Host Name
Displays the host name for the credential.
Displays the user name associated with the credential.
Displays the match type for the credential. Match types are as follows:
  • Exact: defines credentials for a specific IP address or host name
  • Pattern: defines credentials for the entire subnet or IP range, or host name range

    Pattern is a regular expression that is used for matching a string—for example, 10.10.10.* matches any IP address in the range through, and host* matches host names starting with the string host.
