(Beta) AZ List Management: Add, edit, & delete login credential types

In this article

With so many databases in your collection, it can be difficult to keep track of the credentials you need to sign into the admin side of your databases, especially with staff changes and unexpected emergency needs. Luckily you can keep track of all of your logins directly in your A-Z Database List.

The Login Credential Types settings allow you to create different types of credentials that each database can have. When you create or edit a database, that will allow you to store credentials for different types of things—such as signing into the admin side of a database, logging into a database's statistics module, or even a database's SUSHI credentials.

For each Login Credential Type you create, in each individual database you will be able to store a corresponding URL, Login Name, and Password. These credentials are always hidden from the public, and visible only to Admin users and Regular users who have been given the Manage Assets permission.

Example credentials for a database
When adding or editing a database, you can add/view login credentials under the Additional Information panel.
