Create User's Credentials

Important Note:
This article is for the 'Org Administrator' in particular. The actions discussed in the article will not be available to the General Users.  

Credential Manager: Overview

Credential Manager (CM) is the "digital locker" where AutoRABIT stores log-in credentials like usernames and passwords. It securely stores your credentials, so you only need to enter them once for each remote repository you access. Storing login information in the AutoRABIT CM can save time when you access a file share on another machine frequently. 

Create a New Credential

Assuming you log in to AutoRABIT, for example, with username:, you need to do the following: 

  1. Hover your mouse over the Admin tile and select the option: Credentials
  2. Click Create Credential.
  3. On the next pop-up screen, give a Credential name.
  4. Choose a Credential Type from the dropdown field. 
    • Username with Password 
    • SSH type 

Username with Password 

This is password-based authentication where the user needs to enter the required username and password to create a credential.

Credential Scope lets you specify exactly what type of access you need. 
  • Global: Credential can be accessed within the team
  • Private: Credential to be used for private usage

SSH Type

 SSH, or secure shell, is an encrypted protocol used to administer and communicate with servers. SSH is a secure way to remotely access a site’s server. On the client machine, the user must generate a public/private keys pair that will identify himself on the servers. One can choose to protect it with a password or not. Letting it with no password means that anyone with access to the key files will have the same level of access as the user and no password will be asked when the client tries to connect to the servers. Protecting the keys with a password means that every time the user tries to connect to a server using those keys, the password for decrypting it will be asked.

Important Note:
  1. For increased security, AutoRABIT recommends the use of SSH-type credentials rather than password-type credentials.
  2. Credential Scope lets you specify exactly what type of access you need.
    • Global: Credential can be accessed within the team
    • Private: Credential to be used for private usage
  3. Upload the Private key, if available in your local machine, or simply paste into the clipboard provided.
