Applicative credentials Applicative credentials access applications that reside on devices. Patterns can use applicative credentials in addition to the SNMP or SSH credentials that are required to access the device. These fields are available in the Credentials form: Field Description Name Enter a unique and descriptive name for this credential. Active Enable or disable these credentials for use. User name Enter the user name required by the application. Password Enter the password required by the application. Applies to Select whether to apply these credentials to All MID servers in your network, or to one or more Specific MID servers. Specify the MID Servers that should use these credentials in the MID servers field. Order Enter the order (sequence) in which the platform tries this credential as it attempts to log onto devices. The smaller the number, the higher in the list this credential appears. Establish credential order when using large numbers of credentials or when security locks out users after three failed login attempts. If all the credentials have the same order number (or none), the instance tries the credentials in a random order. CI type Select the table for the CI you are trying to discover.
