Credentials

A credential object specifies the user ID and password required to access an SFTP server. If multiple input devices or steps access the same SFTP site with the same credentials, you can specify the user ID and password once in the Credential object and then select that credential in the step or input device that needs it.

If the credentials change and you have multiple input devices or steps that use the same ones, you can edit the Credential object and the new values will be used automatically in all of those places.
