Credentials store

The Credentials Store enables you to store and reuse your credentials for data sources that require authentication. Moogsoft integrations and collectors provide secure user sign-up, sign-in, and access control. All authentications are SSL-encrypted. 

Note the following:

  • Before you install a Collector, it is good practice to enter all required credentials in the Credentials Store. This ensures that the Collector starts collecting all data of interest immediately on startup.

  • Data collection stops if Moogsoft no longer has the required credentials for a data source. This might happen if you delete a set of credentials, or if you update the credentials for the external source without updating the entry in the Credentials Store.

You can save and reuse credentials for products such as AWS, Datadog, PagerDuty, MongoDB, MySQL, and Redis. For a complete list of supported products, go to Settings > Credential Store and click Add Credentials.
