Change credentials to default

Change credentials to default

As part of creating or modifying a discovery pattern, you can use the Unchange user operation to switch back to default administrative credentials if you previously changed them to non-default using the Change user operation.

Before you begin

Navigate to the relevant pattern step:

  1. On the pattern form, select the relevant identification section for Discovery.

    Alternatively, select the relevant identification or connection section for Service Mapping.

  2. Select the relevant pattern step or click to add a step.

Basic knowledge of programming is desirable.

Role required: pd_admin

Procedure

  1. Select Unchange User from the Operation list.
  2. If in Debug mode, test the step by clicking Test and checking that the operation brings the result you expected.

Example

Field Value
Hierarchy Applications > Business Integration Software
CI Type IBM WebSphere MQ Queue
Pattern WMQ Queue Unix Pattern
Section Local queue connectivity
Step number and Name 11. exit change user credentials

As part of discovery of an IBM WebSphere MQ Queue, you change credentials to IBM WebSphere MQ. It allows you to manipulate local IPs to discover connections on the local queue. Once this segment of discovery is complete, you change credentials back to the default: IBM WebSphere MQ Queue credentials.
