Vaults are containers that divide the data source into multiple compartments.
We recommend using Vaults for improved organization and security.Vaults also help performance as they limit the amount of entries that load at once.
Vaults are available with Advanced Data Sources: Devolutions Password Server, SQL Azure, Maria DB, MySQL and SQL server.
This feature underwent a change of name, as Vaults were called Repositories before Remote Desktop Manager 2019.

Vaults simplify user management because Active Directory groups define who has access to a Vaults. These Active Directory groups are known as Roles in Remote Desktop Manager. In general, most roles have access to a couple Vaults, while some groups will only have access to one Vaults. Limiting access to Vaults minimizes the need to set permissions on lower-level folders.
How to assign roles to a Vault and the permissions you need to keep in mind
1.On the Administration tab, then click Vaults.
2.On the User and Security Management window, choose the Vaults, then click Assign Roles.

3.Choose which roles have access to the Vaults: select the Is Member box.
Navigate between vaults with the Vault List or vaults shortcuts.
We recommend administrators and users who have access to multiple vaults create vaults shortcuts to navigate between vaults.
If you use vaults shortcuts, the vault root should only contain folders. Do not save entries at the vault root.
The main (default) vault contains shortcuts to other vaults.
