Using external key vaults
Use the external key vault technology by integrating the Automation 360 platform with third-party key vaults such as AWS Secrets Manager, Azure Key Vault, and CyberArk.
Third-party key vault integration
Automation 360 uses credentials to support business services, such as database connections, Active Directory Integration, and Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) operations. These services can be configured to retrieve the necessary authentication from the integrated external key vault. Only encrypted credentials can be passed from the Control Room to the Database server and are stored in the external vault.
Additionally, auto-login credentials and credentials used by RPA (bots) can be configured for retrieval from the integrated key vault.
- Any necessary database and user credentials.
- Any necessary credential requirements for the external key vault, such as secret keys and application IDs. See the specific requirements for your external key vault on the External Key Vault integration configure page.
