Definitions > Configuring Credentials
vuSmartMaps™ relies on various types of credentials for different activities, including data collection. These credentials are managed within vuSmartMaps under Platform Settings > Definitions > Credentials. The following landing page is shown when navigating to Credentials.
When you navigate to the Credentials page, you’ll find information related to the following types of credentials:
Secure Shell (SSH) is a cryptographic network protocol used for secure remote login and command-line execution. It ensures secure communication over unsecured networks and is commonly used for accessing and managing remote systems. SSH credentials are used by the Command Line Interface (CLI) and Configuration Collector data source to allow vuSmartMaps to communicate securely with client environments.
💡 Note: vuSmartMaps supports only SSH version 2.
The following information is displayed on the SSH table under the Credentials page.
Here are the steps to configure SSH credentials:
Telnet allows remote access and control of devices or systems over a network. It can also be used by other protocols, such as FTP, for establishing protocol control channels.
The following information is displayed on the Telnet table under the Credentials page.
Here are the steps to configure Telnet credentials:
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used to manage network elements. vuSmartMaps utilizes SNMP credentials to collect health and performance information from network devices like routers, firewalls, and switches. The specific SNMP credential configuration depends on the SNMP version being used (v1, v2c, or v3) and may require community strings or usernames, along with authentication and privacy protocols.
SNMP Credential configuration depends upon the SNMP version being used. If the SNMP version is v1 or v2c, you would need the Community string. If the SNMP version is v3, you would need a username. Also, for SNMP version 3, depending upon the security level, you would also need to know the authentication protocol, privacy protocol, and their keys.
The following information is displayed on the SNMP table under the Credentials page.
Here are the steps to configure an SNMP credential:
💡 Note: Please make a note of the following with respect to the v3 version of SNMP on the security level.
User credentials are used to add usernames and passwords for communication with apps or services that require username and password authentication. For example, JDBC and Java API data sources use User credentials.
The following information is displayed on the USER table under the Credentials page:
Here are the steps to configure user credentials:
