Tip

Credential broker performance testing

Credential brokers are designed with human interaction in mind. When BMC Discovery is scanning, it can make many simultaneous API calls. Before putting an integration with any supported credential broker into production, you should perform scale and performance testing in your IT environment.

There are no restrictions on CyberArk Enterprise Platform Vault versions to which you can connect by using the REST API. The current version at the time of release is version 12.4.
