Description

Information systems commonly use credentials to control access to information or other resources. The classic combination of a user's name and a secret password is a widely used example of IT credentials.

Web pages requiring basic authentication can be displayed if the proper credentials are added into Elementi / HMP, if the URL is not being redirected to another page. This doesn't apply for frames embedded into the web page.

HMP

On the HMP side, credentials are used when accessing resources from web servers requiring authentication. The credentials are configured from:

Elementi

On Elementi side, credentials are used when opening and / or publishing content onto HMPs or Publish Locations or accessing resources from web servers.

They are managed from Menu > Settings > Network Credentials... dialog.

  • The passwords are not displayed in clear until the button "Show Passwords" is clicked.
  • Starting with Elementi 2018, it is possible to select multiple rows by holding the Shift key, and delete them by pressing the Delete key.

The credentials are stored as encrypted hashes and cannot be used on another machine.
