How to Set Credentials for a User Mapping

Use this command to set the credentials for a user to access a specific application.

This command does not display the password as you type it.

If the user mapping already exists, this command sets the credentials for that existing mapping. If you have not created the user mapping, the SSO system will prompt you for the user ID for the application.

To set credentials for a user mapping

  3. Type ssomanage –setcredentials <domain>\<username> <applicationname>, where <domain> is the Windows domain for the user account, <username> is the Windows user name, and <applicationname> is the specific application for which you want to set the credentials for.

    On a system that supports User Account Control (UAC), you may need to run the tool with Administrative privileges.

  4. When the SSO system prompts you for the user credentials, enter the user password for this application.

  5. If you have not created the user mapping, the SSO system will prompt you for the user ID for the application.
