Abstract

Configure credentials for integration instances by entering them manually, by using Credentials in Cortex XSIAM Settings or by using external credentials.

Saved credentials simplify and compartmentalize administrative tasks, and enable you to save login information without exposing usernames, passwords, or certificates. You can also reuse credentials across multiple systems, for example, when using the same administrator password across multiple endpoints.

After you set up a credential, you can configure integration instances to use it instead of entering the name and password manually. Also, when you configure a system in which an agent will be deployed, you can use the credentials argument instead of user and password.

There are several ways you can configure credentials for an integration instance.
