Configuring credentials

Configuring the Agent Manager : Configuring credentials

Different cartridges support different types of credentials. Some cartridges, for example, support the use of Windows® and UNIX® credentials, while others can only authenticate local users. The credential type determines which parts of the monitored system are used to connect to a resource, such as host names or IP addresses. For complete information about cartridge-specific credential types, see your cartridge documentation.
Challenge Response: Uses one or more challenge and response pairs to grant access without requiring any interaction in the browser interface. The answers are sent by the agent as part of the agent configuration.
Domain, User Name, and Password (Windows): Requires a user name and password to access a monitored resource. The domain name is optional.
DSA Key: Uses the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) Key for authentication.
RSA Key: Uses the RSA (Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman) Key for authentication.
Use Client’s Login At Connection Time: Uses the currently logged in user’s account to access secured resources. This is not the user currently logged into the Management Server, but the user under which the credential client is running. For example, a credential provided to an Agent Manager instance launched by a user on a remote machine, causes the connection to the secured resource to be made using this user’s identity.
User Name: Requires a user name to access a monitored resource.
User Name and Password: Requires a user name and password to access a monitored resource.
