Configure CyberArk for SNMPv2 credentials

If your system uses SNMPv2, you can create a special file to map the attribute in a credential to the community string.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

Before starting this procedure, configure the MID Server to have access to the CyberArk vault.

About this task

Note: If the community string appears in the password field of the CyberArk credential, it is not necessary to perform this procedure.

SNMPv2 is not natively supported in CyberArk. If your organization has created custom SNMPv2 credentials in which the community string does not appear in the password field of the credential, use this procedure to map the attribute in the credential to the community string.

Procedure

  1. In a text editor, create a file called CredMap.properties, containing this code:
    SNMPv2.Community=attribute_name
  2. Save the file to the /agent directory of your MID Server installation.
    On credential lookup, the MID Server attempts to find this attribute for the credential. If the attribute is not found, the MID Server then looks in the password field. If the password field is empty, the credential lookup fails.
