This component lets you set up run time Symantec Management Console authentication credentials (Username, Password, and Domain) and place them in an output security token. However, it cannot be used to set up the IP address (or fully qualified domain name) of a Symantec Management Console. This component is normally used with the Add New Data Element component to set up the full authentication (the Symantec Management Console IP address and authentication credentials) that components can use to access the run time Symantec Management Console. Every Symantec component that is down the path of this component can use its output parameter.
The Create Basic Authentication Token component is used inside of the Create Notification Server Credentials component when you set up an embedded model. Generally, if you use the Create Notification Server Credentials component, you do not need to use this component. However, you may use the output security token generated by this component at any place in your workflow instead of the security token generated by the Create Notification Server Credentials component.
The options in this section let you enter the credentials of the Symantec Management Console that components can use at run time.
When you click the [...] button, the value source selector opens and lets you set an option's value.
These credentials get placed in the security token selected in the Output Token Variable Name option in the Output section.
The Output Token Variable Name option lets you select the security token that you want to contain the credentials set in the Basic Authentication section.
The NSAuthenticationToken global variable is available to use as the security token. The NSAuthenticationToken global variable is also available to use for the Create Notification Server Credentials component. You can create more global security tokens in the project global properties in the Global Data tab. The security token must be of type ProxySecurityToken.
When you click the [...] button, the value source selector opens and lets you change the security token.
