Overview

Important Information

Once you have configured credentials for your chosen platform, you can use these throughout your Matillion ETL instance, such as when you create a project or edit your environment.


Credentials refer to roles and permissions you can set on the hosting platform of your Matillion ETL instance. There are two types of credentials you can use in your Matillion ETL instance:

  1. Instance Credentials: Tied to the instance hosting the Matillion ETL client. These cannot be edited from within the client, and must be changed from the console of the hosting platform. These types of credentials are overruled by User Defined credentials.
  2. User Defined Credentials: Environment-specific, and are set by the user in the Manage Credentials dialog. You can modify these types of credentials from within your Matillion ETL instance, and use a different set of credentials for each environment, which users are free to switch between.

Please Note

Matillion ETL can integrate with other platform-specific services in your account, provided you have authorized it to do so. This is not compulsory, although some parts of the product (such as automatic discovery of Storage associated with your account) may not fully function without appropriate credentials.



Accessing Manage Credentials

1. You can create new sets of credentials for your chosen platform by accessing the Manage Credentials dialog. To do this, click Project, then Manage Credentials in your Matillion ETL instance.

2. The Manage Credentials dialog will be displayed, where you can choose to test any existing Instance credentials, or create and/or test User Defined credentials.



Configuring Instance Credentials

Instance Credentials are only applicable for the platform the instance is hosted on. If instance credentials are available, you can test them by clicking Test at the top of the Manage Credentials dialog. This will check access to any services that Matillion ETL uses. You may continue even if the tests fail; however, some parts of the product may be impaired or non-functional without appropriate credentials.
