Create SNMP Credentials

If scanning devices managed by an SNMP community, you can add your community strings.

  1. In the BeyondInsight console, navigate to Configuration > Discovery Management > Credentials.
  2. Click Create Credential.
  3. From the Type list, select SNMPv2.
  4. Enter a Description, Key and Community String.
  5. If you would like this credential to be used for scanning by local scanners, click the slider to make it available, and then select the scanner.

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.
