Abstract

Cortex XSOAR integrates with external credential vaults, which enables you to use them in Cortex XSOAR without hard coding or exposing the credentials.

Cortex XSOAR integrates with external credential vaults, which enables you to use them without hard coding or exposing the credentials. The credentials are not stored in Cortex XSOAR, but the integration fetches the credentials from the external vault when called. The credentials are passed to the relevant executed integrations as part of the integration parameters.

Sample credentials provider integrations:

After the integration is configured to fetch credentials, the credentials will be available from the Credentials drop-down menu, and for use in scripts and playbooks. To use these credentials in an integration, click Switch to credentials in an integration instance, and select the necessary credential from the drop-down menu.
