Password

Text, Optional

NOTE: Leave the Username and Password fields blank in order to use the logon user's credentials. If only accessing Active Directory information, then any Domain user is valid. However, a Domain Administrator is required in order to modify an Active Directory user or group. We recommend using the credentials of a Domain Administrator for all AutoMate Active Directory actions.
