These settings affect the credentials that are used to connect to devices.
- Master Password: Check
the check box in order to allow the Cisco CLI Analyzer to save a master
password. The master password allows you to store credentials for
individual devices so that you do not have to enter them every time.
The application uses Secure Hash Algorithm 3 (SHA-3) in order to securely
store the password as a hash value in the database.
If this feature is enabled, when you open the Cisco CLI Analyzer,
the application prompts you to enter the master password. If you do
not enter the master password, you must enter credentials for each
individual device session.
In order to change the password, click Change
Password. Enter the old master password and the new one.
- Auto Refresh CCO Login:
(This feature requires that Master Password be enabled.) When this
setting is enabled, the CLI Analyzer encrypts and stores CCO login
information for thirty days. During that time, the application does
not prompt you to enter your CCO login in order to access features
that require it.
Inactivity Timeout: (This feature requires that Master Password
be enabled.) Select the duration of inactivity before which the application
will enter locked mode, or select Disabled in order to disable the
timeout feature. When the application is locked, you must enter the
master password in order to unlock it. If you do not have the master
password, you can close the application and reopen it, and then clear
the master password.
Server Profiles: Create a profile that contains the credentials
needed in order to connect to a jump server and the commands to run
on the server after connection. In order to create a profile, click
Enter the jump server's name and IP address, the port number and
connection type to use, and the user name and password. In the Commands area, enter the commands
that you want to run. (Versions 3.5 and later support regex values
in the expect string. Use -r to indicate that the value is a regular
expression; use -i to indicate case insensitivity.)

- Credential Profiles: Create
and manage user profiles that you can use to initiate device sessions.
In order to create a profile, click Add
Profile and enter a name for the profile and the credentials
to use in order to access the device. In order to enable a device
to use the profile, edit the device and choose the credential profile
that the device accepts.
Note: You can also use the Bulk Actions
feature in order to assign credential profiles to multiple devices.
Select the devices, click the Bulk
Actions button, and select Apply
- Default Credential Profile:
Choose a profile to use as the default. If you choose Per
Device, there is no default profile, and devices that are configured
to accept the default profile will accept only their own individual
