    Is there any process to update/create credential manager details without going to the system manager?

    It is possible to update existing credentials using the Credentials VBO.  However you cannot create a new credential using the VBO.  A credential still needs to be created manually inside the Blue Prism -> System -> Security -> Credentials section.

    Thanks James for your update.
    Lets' say If my process uses some web portal having a user id and a password for each vm/robot and my process need to be run in 100 vms. So, do you mean that i need to create entry inside credential manager manually for all the 100 VM ? or is there any other better way to do that ?

    It would be possible to automate the creation of credentials using the Blue Prism command line utility (AutomateC.exe). For this you would need to use the /createcredential command. E.g.

    /createcredential <name> <username> <password> [/description <string>] [/expirydate <date>] [/invalid <flag>] [/credentialtype <string>]


    This command creates a new credential using the specified name, password and username. Username and password can both be represented with "" if not required.
    A General credential type will be created is none is specified. The credential created will be universally available to all user roles, resources and processes by default.


    Further information can be found in the in the Blue Prism help (When in the product select the question mark in the top right of the application or press F1), search for /createcredential.

    Hi,

    You can omit these values such as [/description <string>] [/expirydate <date>] [/invalid <flag>] [/credentialtype <string>].

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    It seems you don't have real valid Blue Prism User.
    Do you have the "Test" User with password of "Test"?

    Hi,

    As far as know it really not matters whether we have a valid pair of Username & Password for creating credentials.

    I tried creating it manually, and it is working. But From cmd, I am not able to do so.

    @James Marsh, could you please help me with the exact syntax for creating a credential from CMD.

    Hi Kalpesh,

    If you've configured Blue Prism with native Blue Prism user authentication and you have to specify this in the command line before creating the credential. See below;

    C:\Program Files\Blue Prism Limited\Blue Prism Automate>automateC.exe /user admin admin /createcredential "test" "test" "test" /description "test"
    Successfully saved credential 'test'.

    This parameter refers to the user creating the credential "/user admin admintest". With Microsoft AD authentication you would replace this parameter with /sso.

    Arulkumar Srinivasan you are correct. Incase of SSO you can ignore it.

    Hi @Arulkumar Srinivasan,

    You might be directly pasting the command after copying from here.

    First try to navigate to your local automate.exe path. and then you can write or paste the command there. And the User admin can be replaced with your interactive client credentials, which you are using to login to the BP.

    Please refer to the attachment. ​ Let me know in case still there is any error.

    Thanks

    Do you mean that the command line window itself is asking for credentials and not BP? What happens if you launch the cmd window using right click "run as administrator" privileges?
