Used to define the credential source:

Default: Uses the username and password from the session type configuration.

Credential repository: Links this session to an existing Credential repository entry. This is the solution that allows for reuse and lets you maintain the minimum number of entries whenever the credentials need updating.

Embedded: Creates an embedded Credential repository entry. It will be stored within this session's configuration.

Inherited: This will use the credentials of the parent of the entry.

My personal credentials: This setting will use your account-specific personal credentials. These can be setup in File My Account Settings.

None: This will setup the entry without credentials.

Private Vault search: This will allow you to use credential entries currently located in your Private Vault.
