Add, edit, and delete credentials within the Credentials Library for SAM

Updated: 12-1-2016

You can add and manage credentials through the Credentials Library. These credentials are associated and used with component monitors to retrieve data from servers and services.

You may need to log in with an administrator account to perform this action.

Add credentials to the Credentials Library

  1. On the Web Console, click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Credentials Library > Add New Credential.
  2. Provide a name for the credential set. SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor displays this name in the Credential for Monitoring field of monitors that accept credentials.
  3. Provide the user name and password, and then confirm the password and click Submit. If you are providing windows credentials for accessing and harvesting information through WMI, ensure you provide the account name in the following syntax: domainOrComputerName\user name for domain level authentication or User Name for workgroup level authentication.

You can assign credentials to all the associated components of a template or application monitor.

Edit credentials in the Credentials Library

You may need to log in with an administrator account to perform this action.

  1. From the Credentials Library, click Edit for the desired credential.
  2. Modify the information as needed and then click Submit.

You may need to log in with an administrator account to perform this action.

  1. On the Web Console, click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Credentials Library.
  2. Click Delete for the desired credential.
