SSH Server Credentials

  1. In the SSH Settings window, select one of the following options:
  • Prompt users to log in with their own credentials option. This means that the user credentials are not saved in the application and the user will be prompted to add a username and password when accessing the application.
  • Use an Axis IdP personal Private Key.: Choosing this option will connect the user to the SSH machine with the personal key configured in Axis IdP.
    The private key is then used for authentication when accessing the SSH application.
  • Use predefined credentials to log users in: In the Server username and Server password, enter the root credentials. Click here to learn more about SSH user provisioning.
