Starting with vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager 8.2, you can manage passwords that are stored at the Locker level for vCenter servers, products, and My VMware.
You can add a new password on the Passwords page under Locker. Click Add and enter the alias and password details to add a new password.
For the existing passwords on the Passwords page, click the ellipsis (...), and then select one of the following options:
|View Password||You can view the selected password after you authenticate the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager root password.|
|Copy ID||You can copy the password ID and reuse the password. For example, when exporting JSON for product deployment, you can copy and reuse the exisiting password ID.|
|Edit Password||You can edit a password that does not have a reference to an existing password. For example, if you use a password in an environment, such as vCenter server or MyVMware, the edit password option for that password is disabled.|
|Delete Password||You can delete a password that is no longer used and does not have any references. For example, if you use a password in an environment, such as vCenter server or MyVMware, the delete password option for that password is disabled.|
If you select an existing password, you can view the password details and the references for the selected password. The Details tab displays the password identifier, username, password description, password creation and last updated dates for the selected password. The References tab displays the references for environments at the product and node level, vCenter passwords in data centers, and other passwords that are used in the Settings tab.
- When you update a password that is managed by vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, such as products, nodes, or root user, the password is updated on the Passwords page and the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager inventory.
- When you update a password for vCenter, MyVMware, proxy, or VMware Identity Manager configuration administrators, the password is updated only in the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager inventory.
