Managing Credentials

Orchestrator Administrators can choose which credentials will be visible to Plan Authors and available for use in orchestration plans. These credentials can be used in plans, for example, to run verification scripts inside the guest OS, or in other checks.

If you select the Retrieve managed credentials from Veeam Backup & Replication servers option when connecting or editing a Veeam Backup & Replication server, Orchestrator will automatically collect all credentials from the server and display them in the Orchestrator UI. The Orchestrator UI allows you to edit the existing credentials, and add any domain and non-domain accounts (in any format, and even those that do not exist yet).


Orchestrator collects only standard accounts from connected Veeam Backup & Replication servers — it does not collect Linux accounts and Linux private keys.
