To create a new credential, provide the following information:
Credentials provide an efficient way of passing sensitive information (logins, passwords, etc.) to multiple servers. Once a credential is created, it can be used to define input values. In order to create a new Credential you will need 'designer' user role privileges. Only users with 'admin' privileges will be able to view the stored value of a Credential.
Servers are often launched with software that requires credentials in order to access certain resources, such as your code repositories (GIT / SVN). Any type of sensitive information should be stored as a credential because the stored information will be encrypted and will not be retrievable through the web interface.
Note: The Credentials Store is separate from your individual cloud credentials and RightScale account information (Settings -> Account).Design > Credentials > Index
If you have 'admin' privileges on the RightScale account, you can click on the "Show Value" link and enter your RightScale account's password in order to view the actual value of a credential. You can also edit the value of an existing credential, but be careful! If you change the value of a credential it will take effect immediately. Any ServerTemplate/Server where an input is defined by the credential will use the new value when a new server is launched or when a related script is run.Design > Credentials > Show
