Referencing CredentialStore fields.

Note: Availability starting with YADE-481.

Referencing a field in the CredentialStore is effected by the following syntax:



  • cs://         is a constant prefix that is used by YADE to identify this setting to be a reference to a CredentialStore.
  • entry_path      specifies the path to an entry within the CredentialStore database. Folders (groups) within a path are separated by a slash "/". This setting is optional. If ommitted then the value of the CSEntryPath configuration item is used.
  • entry_field          is one of the standard fields available in a CredentialStore:
    • title
    • user
    • password
    • url
    • notes
    • attachment
    or the custom fields.

<Hostname> element:

  • Usage like the examples below.
  • If the entry field value is defined with host:port, YADE sets the <Hostname> and <Port> automatically.


  • Examples for fully specified entry path:
    • <Domain>, <Hostname>, <Account>, <Password>, <Passphrase> elements:
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@title
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@user
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@password
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@url
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@notes
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@my_custom_field
    • <AuthenticationFile> element:
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@attachment - the first attachment
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@my_custom_field - a specified attachment
  • Examples without fully specified entry path:
    • <Domain>, <Hostname>, <Account>, <Password>, <Passphrase> elements:
      • cs://@title
      • cs://@user
      • cs://@password
      • cs://@url
      • cs://@notes
      • cs://@my_custom_field
