Create credential

Create a credential and add the required attributes.


This task is performed by the Automation Anywhere Control Room administrator. You must have the necessary rights and permissions to complete this task. Ensure you are logged in to the Control Room as the administrator, or a user with either the AAE_Locker Admin role, or a user-created role with the Manage my credentials and lockers permission to configure lockers, add credentials, and grants access to other users.
Assign the credential when adding the credential details. If no locker was created, create a locker and then assign the credential. Add up to 50 attributes to a credential.


  1. Log in to the Control Room as the administrator.
  2. Navigate to Manage > Credentials and click Create credential.
  3. Enter the Credential name and a Description for the configured credential or select External key vault.
    If integrating with an external key vault, then proceed to Select External key vault.
  4. Enter the Attribute name and supply the Description for the attribute.
  5. Select External key vault.
    If integrating with an external key vault, such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, or CyberArk, enter the required credentials for the specified external vault as follows:
    Enter the secret name.
    Enter the object name.
    Microsoft Azure
    Enter the secret name.
  6. Select one of the following Input options:
    Standard Enter the value. All users see the same credential value set by the credential owner.
    User-provided The value field is not available because the values are not preset during creation. Only users of the locker containing this credential can provide the value.
  7. Set Security for the attribute.
    Note: When the Masked option is selected, the attribute value is marked as a password-only attribute and shown as asterisk (*) characters for security purpose.
  8. Optional: Select Use attribute ONLY on Password or Masked fields.
    This option ensures that bots input the attribute value only into fields that are identified as password fields.
    Note: When this option is selected, an attribute is available only for the commands in Automation Anywhere Enterprise client that support credential variables and where the fields are of Password type.
  9. Click Create credential.
