A few months ago, we created a new type of mabl credentials known as cloud credentials. Only available for use in cloud runs, cloud credentials use a password that is irretrievable once saved, and they are an ideal option for test environments that access sensitive data.
To better support teams managing credentials in mabl, we added the ability to convert basic credentials into cloud credentials. This option is useful for teams that want to add an extra layer of security to existing tests and plans that use mabl credentials.
All users have already received this update automatically, so there is no need to update your Desktop App.
Converting basic credentials into cloud credentials is a one-way operation and cannot be reverted.
To convert a set of basic credentials into cloud credentials, take the following steps:
- Go to the credentials page:
Configuration > Credentials
- Choose a basic credential you wish to convert.
- Click on the pencil to edit the credential.
- Scroll to the bottom of the screen and check the box "Save as cloud credential".
- Save your changes.
After saving, the Credential Details page shows the credentials with the updated type: "Cloud."
