If creating Oracle, SSH, or SNMP credentials, please see the following:

This feature propagates credentials stored in BeyondInsight to Discovery Scanner servers and allows end users and API calls to leverage credentials locally on the network scanner. This eliminates the need to provide credentials separately for those scanners.

If the credential name matches an existing credential in the BeyondTrust Discovery Scanner, the credential is overwritten with the value from BeyondInsight.
