Credential entries store account information, such as usernames, passwords, domains, etc. Credentials entries are grouped in a Credential repository, a collection of all the credentials stored in the data source.

Credential entries offer flexibility in Remote Desktop Manager.

Set multiple sessions to use a specific credential entry in the data source. Choose Credential repository from the Credentials list in the entry properties. One benefit is you only need to change information in one entry, when required. See Credential repository below.

Use Dynamic Credential Linking and Credential Redirection with third-party password managers.

Configure User Specific Settings or a Private Vault Search in entry properties to link credentials stored in a Private Vault with entries in shared Vaults.

To create a credential entry, use the New Entry button and select the Credentials section.

The credential branch

By default, credentials are stored in the same list as other entries are. This behavior can be changed so credentials are stored in a separated list.

To separate credentials from other entries, navigate to File – Options – User Interface – Tree View. Under UI Options, disable the Merge credential list with sessions option. You must also disable this option in the Data Source Settings (System Settings) – Applications – Type Settings.

The Credential repository

The Credential repository is the collection of all the credentials stored in the data source. The Credential repository allows you to use the same credential entry for multiple session.

The Credential repository is available almost anywhere in RDM, including Folders, Sessions, Synchronizers, VPN and Website entry types.

When configuring a session select Credential repository from the Credential drop down list, then select the desired credential entry from the credentials list.
