Construct a Credentials Object

After you determine the settings for a specific credential type, you can construct a credentials object.

The format of the credentials object depends on whether you want to use the object for scan-specific or managed credentials.

Scan-Specific Credentials Object

Use this format when creating or updating scan-specific credentials.

{
  "{credential_category}": {
    "{credential_type}": [
      {
        "{credential_setting_1}": "{value_1}",
        "{credential_setting_2}": "{value_2}",
        "{credential_setting_3}": "{value_3}"
      }
    ]
  }
}

For example:

{
  "Host": {
    "Windows": [
      {
        "domain": "",
        "username": "[email protected]",
        "auth_method": "Password",
        "password": "aJ^deq34Rc"
      }
    ]
  }
}

Managed Credentials Object

Use this format when creating or updating managed credentials.

{
  "type": "{credential_type}",
  "settings": {
      "{credential_setting_1}": "{value_1}",
      "{credential_setting_2}": "{value_2}",
      "{credential_setting_3}": "{value_3}"
    }
}

For example:

{
  "type": "Windows",
  "settings": {
      "domain": "",
      "username": "[email protected]",
      "auth_method": "Password",
      "password": "aJ^deq34Rc"
  }
}
