Cloud Management (CMP) node credentials

Cloud Management (CMP) node credentials associate credentials for a virtual server that Cloud Management provisions. The Cloud Management application automatically creates these credentials.

You might need to deactivate these credentials if you no longer want them used, change the order precedence, or select a MID Server that is allowed to access them. Otherwise, you do not need to manually create or modify this type of credential.
Field Description
Name The automatically generated name based on the datacenter where the virtual machine is located.
Active If the credentials are active.
Applies to Choose whether this credential is available to a specific MID Server or a all MID Servers.
Order

Enter the order (sequence) in which the platform tries this credential as it attempts to log on to 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.

SSH passphrase and SSH private key The private key and the passphrase that protects the key if the virtual server requires it.
Authentication Protocol and Authentication Key The private key and the passphrase that protects the key if the virtual server requires it.

Tag Allow workflow creators to assign individual credentials to any activity in an Orchestration workflow or assign different credentials to each occurrence of the same activity type in an Orchestration workflow.
