Credentials store

The Credentials Store enables you to store and reuse your credentials for data sources that require authentication. Express integrations and collectors use auth0, which provides 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 will stop if Express 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.
