The Credentials tab allows you to create, modify, or delete credentials for your target computers. You can use this information while creating data collectors to help you make data collector creation more efficient.

If the target computers from which you want to collect the data use the same credentials, then instead of manually entering the credentials every time you create the data collector, you can create a credential and reuse it every time you create a new data collector.
