Modify the SetCredentials method

Updated on October 19, 2022

Call the client credential provider SetCredentials method when the ASO Manager or the Credential Store requests a credential update. Add the logic into this method to update the credentials in your external source.

The SetCredentials method includes the following parameters:

applicationKeyA string that contains the name of the credential that you requested.
customDataA dictionary that contains name/value pairs. This dictionary contains all the values on the credential entry and all the replaceable system parameters, for example:
  • RobotName
  • RobotIndex
  • CurrentUser
  • Domain
  • AdapterFriendlyName
  • MachineName
  • WorkGroup
domainA string that contains the new domain value.
userNameA string that contains the new user name value.
passwordA string that contains the new password value.
Note: If you do not implement the SetCredentials method, you can receive a NotSupportedException error.

Add the required code to the method to query and update the external source. The code you add replaces the code highlighted in yellow in the following example:

The SetCredentials method returns true or false for the result. If the result is true, the credential update succeeded. If the result is false, the credential request failed.
