Allow PI-ICU to Create/Edit Stored Credentials in Credential Manager
An issue we run into often is that most of the accounts that are used to run our interfaces (mostly OPC DA) are different from accounts we use to configure the interfaces. Because these interfaces run on different domains, we have to store an account that can authenticate with the PI server in Credential Manager. This is easy to update for the logged in user but much more difficult for the service that runs the interface. Lots of times these accounts are not able to log in interactively and also are admin type accounts that the control systems personnel want to only have the password for and will enter it once during the install of the interface. It would be nice for PI-ICU to have a way to create and/or update credentials in Credential Manager for the PI server the interface runs against so that the people who manage the interface do not have to always get the password from the control systems engineer when they need to change the stored credential. Thanks.
This is a great idea!
this sounds like a great idea!
Great idea! This is by far one of the most tedious parts of getting an interface configured correctly.
This would be a major help during PI Interface installs and upgrades! I can't believe the idea had only one vote.
