Hello,

At this time, we do not have the ability to use stored credentials as variables for scripts or sensors in PRTG.

Let me know if I can answer any other questions.

It's probably more secure to just use Windows' integrated credential store. Think about it: A bad guy obtaining access to your PRTG web interface, using HTTP notifications to send credentials to a target URL where he collects your credentials. That's what we'd like to prevent here.

Hi,

Yeah, your Windows's Integrated Credential is more secure, just my PRTG has only an access with VPN. I have 250+ server (VM) with different credential for all server (because i execute powershell script or EXE) and script need the "Opened Account" on the server same for EXE... And i have many probe in PRTG.

My team does not support prtg (im alone to maintain it) and i have automated all prtg (Automatically grab all VM on each HyperV (many hyperV), create sensor...) All C# exe created does not use the Credential Store... And it's not possible to copy the Credential Store to other PRTG Probe. Is not a solution for me :'(

Sorry, there's not much we can do in this case :/ Perhaps this kind of storage is more suitable: https://blog.kloud.com.au/2016/04/21/using-saved-credentials-securely-in-powershell-scripts/

You could use the device name as template and access them by name? Sorry that this is such a hassle for you :(
