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.
  3. Enter the Credential name and a Description for the configured credential or select External key vault.
    If integrating with an external key vault, proceed to Step 5.
  4. Enter the Attribute name and supply the Description for the attribute.
  5. Selecting External key vault
    If integrating with an external key vault, such as AWS, Azure, or CyberArk, enter the required credentials for the specified external vault:
    Enter the secret name.
    Enter the object name.
    Enter the secret name.
  6. Select Input:
    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.
    All masked values will be shown as asterisks.
  8. Optional: Select the Set this attribute as password option.
    This option allows bots to input the attribute value only into fields that are identified as password fields.
  9. Click Create credential.
