Your Credentials are saved securely in the platform and can be used when connecting to Sources and Destinations which require the same authentication.
When you configure a new Source or Destination, you can either add new or use existing Credentials that are valid for your Source or Destination type. For example, you can reuse the same Credential for multiple tables within a BigQuery dataset.
In the Credentials settings page you can:
- View the list of saved Credentials.
- Create new Credential.
- Update, rename, or remove existing Credential.
Permissions and credential parameters
The required Credential parameters depend on the Source or Destination type. For example, the credential parameters can include: host, port, username, and password.
Before you configure Credential parameters, the user or service account you use must have permissions to read or write datapoints. The required parameters are listed in the individual Source and Destination pages.
