To maintain only one API key on the robot, and still have access to an unlimited number of API keys that are retrieved from BeyondTrust when needed, you can set up Pega Access.
- Configure robots to work with BeyondTrust
Prepare robots for integration with BeyondTrust and to store shared secrets by editing the Pega Robotic Automation configuration files.
- Using the Credential Manager utility to store API keys
Store the API Groups (API keys) and Runas users that are required for retrieving credentials from BeyondTrust by using the RPA Service Credential Manager (CredMgrUI.exe) utility. These shared secrets are stored in an encrypted file named RpaStartup.info in the C:\ProgramData\Pegasystems folder.
