Managing credentials

I am currently onboarding and moving off another monitoring platform that wasn’t working for my organization. However, it did have a credential manager feature that was exceptionally useful. It would track SNMP strings and credentials across the platform and I could make changes to a set of credentials in the credential manager and have it carry those changes to all the appropriate devices. I could also run reports on which devices were using which strings or credentials. I know that LogicMonitor will allow for easy changes via inheritance, but my environment is made up of a variety of organizations and there frequently will be cases where the inheritance model does not work for us.

  • We have the same problem. Our goal for over a year now has been to use the Thychotic integration, but it doesn’t currently work (broken logic in the AppliesTo). Would love to hear how this might solve the issue.

    Seems like we this would be best addressed as a feature request for a native LM Credential Manager. Did you have a more direct question to ask?

  • I’ve also gone ahead and submitted feedback on your behalf. Hopefully, this is something that we will see come to fruition in a future release. 

  • Is there any thoughts on this from staff? This is something that will only become a greater and greater need as time goes on, especially if we increase the scope of our deployment
