Editing credentials

For every credential that you create, you can view, edit, disable, test, or delete it. You can view the credentials on the main tab of a credential type page, for example, the Devices tab. The credentials are checked in sequence, and the first matching entry is used. After a working credential is found, no further credentials are checked. If you want to reorder login credentials, drag the credential to the required position in the list.

Accessing credentials

On the Device Credentials page, the system displays the available credentials filtered by various credential categories, such as Host Credentials, Device Credentials, and so on. You can change the type of device credentials displayed on the main page by using the filter option. The following table explains the various actions you can perform for a credential.
