Foglight Resource Optimizer 5.8 - User Guide (for VMware Environments)

Credentials tab

A credential is a piece of information that an agent instance needs, in order to gain access to the monitored system. Credentials are encrypted and stored in lockboxes. You can manage credentials in Foglight using the Administration > Credentials dashboard. For information about this topic, see the “Controlling System Access with Credentials” section in the Foglight Administration and Configuration Guide.

The Credentials tab allows you to add, edit, and remove credentials groups. This tab is only for the Storage rightsizer.
