Manage credentials

Use the Credential Vault API to create, delete, search for, and update credentials.

Permissions

By default, all users can create credentials. You are the Credential owner of any credentials that you created. As a Credential owner, you can update, delete, and transfer the ownership of your credentials.

Credential URLS

Create credential
Creates a new credential and configures one or more attributes.
POST http://<your_control_room_url>/v2/credentialvault/credentials

description Optional New credential description; 255 characters maximum
attributes
name Required New attribute name; 50 characters maximum and cannot contain special characters
description Optional New attribute description; 255 characters maximum
userProvided Required Configures the input type with the following options:
  • If userProvided: true, the value is not preset during creation. Only consumers of the locker containing this credential can provide the value.
  • If userProvided: false, the credential owner enters the value. All consumers see the same attribute value set by the credential owner.
masked Optional Configures whether to mask the value. If masked: false, the value returns as an empty string when called.
passwordFlag Optional Flags the value as a password, which limits its use only to password-type fields. This ensures the value is not printed to plain text application. Commands that support Credential Variables
