You require credentials to collect information from the selected platforms. A single common credential can be used for multiple operations. You also require asset credentials for data collection in CCS.
Managing credentials involves the following steps:
Navigate to Credentials view.
Configure common and asset credentials
Using common credential in Windows, SQL, UNIX, and Oracle you can use a single account credentials for asset system. You need credentials mainly for accessing the network assets and secondary assets. For instance, Windows machine, Windows file. However, you have to configure the credentials which can be used to collect information for the assets.
Save the specified common and asset credentials as credentials and reuse them
You can save the credential by assigning a user name and a passwords to it. If saved credentials are available then you can reuse them instead of entering the user name and the password again. Hence instead of providing the credentials at multiple places, you can use the saved credentials seamlessly.
