This function erases the data source credentials for the current data warehouse.
Erasing credentials may be useful in the following circumstances:
- When you move metadata between environments (say, development to production) and want to be sure that your data sources are not accidentally pointing at the development source.
- When you want to share a metadata file with a third party, but don’t want that party to have access to the credentials of your own databases, such as a consultant working offline.
- When you want to change licence keys for Ajilius, perhaps when handing over work from a consultant to an in-house developer.
When you select this function from the Deploy | Clean Credentials menu option, the following screen will be displayed:
Press the Clean button to erase the credentials. A message will be displayed on completion of this task.
Press the Cancel button to return to the previous list screen without altering data source credentials.
