Using a Credential store for password storage

A Credential store allows you to use passwords without showing the actual password. For the ODBC connection from the SAP Connector to the SAP database it is also possible to use a Credential store to store the actual password of the SAP account in a secured way.

Note

By default, a password identifier from the Credential store is configured in the SAP Connector. If you do not use a Credential store you must adapt the SAP Connection string expression accordingly. See the illustration below.
