    Field Description
    Name Enter a unique and descriptive name for this credential. For example, NewvRealize.
    User name Name to identify the user.
    • If the username is internal in vRealize, use it as is.
    • If vRealize is integrated with Active Directory (AD), use the format

      DOMAIN\username@sourceauth. For example, local\administrator@All vCenter Servers.

    Password Password to use this credential.
    Active Option to enable the use of this credential.
    Order 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. Default value: 100
