Credential manager

Sometimes you may need to connect the remote computer with different credentials (Tree -> Connect with different credentials).

Event Log Explorer lets you automate connecting with different (alternative) credentials by storing required user credentials for each remote computer.

To open Credential manager, select Advanced -> Credentials from the main menu.

To add a new credential, click Add and input machine name, user name and user password. User credentials are stored in the workspace file, the password is encrypted.

To change an existing credential, click Edit button. To change several existing credentials, select several items in the list, then click Edit button.

To remove selected or all credentials, click Remove or Clear all respectively.

Whenever you connect any computer, Event Log Explorer will check if you assigned an alternative credential for this computer. If you did, it will try to apply this credential.
