PageCredential_32_256x256

The Credentials page allows you to assign a credential to the object. You can specify username and password, assign a predefined credential or you specify a credential by name (ideal when you share your configuration). You can also use the credentials defined in the parent folder.

 

Credential Configuration

Run this task with the logged on user

Command Tasks are executed with the user running Royal TS.

 

Use the context credentials

If selected, Royal TS will use the credentials of the context object (connections the task is executed against).

 

Specify username and password

When selected, a username and password can be provided. For domain accounts use the syntax "domain\username" (without the quotes).

 

Use an existing credential

When selected, assign an existing credential to the object using the drop-down list. Use the add button to add a new credential. Use the edit button to edit the selected credential.

Note

The drop-down list supports sorting and filtering "as you type" to easily find the correct credential.

 

Specify a credential name

When selected, enter or choose a credential name you want to assign to the object during connect-time.

Note

Assigning a credential by name is recommended when a team of users share the same configuration file. Each user can define his own credential as long as it is using the same name and saves the credential in his own personal and protected document. This makes sharing files across team members very easy while keeping credentials safe.

 

Use credentials from the context connection (only available for Templates)

When selected, a username and password can be provided. For domain accounts use the syntax "domain\username" (without the quotes).

 

Load User Profile

When checked, Royal TS will load the user profile for the selected user or credential.
