Credential Vault is a feature in Automation Anywhere Enterprise that stores sensitive information like passwords, usernames, and other data in an encrypted format. This encrypted data can then be used by bots to login to applications and websites, eliminating the need for hard-coding passwords in your automation scripts.
To use Credential Vault, simply create a new vault and add the relevant information. When you need to use the data in your automation scripts, simply call the vault and the data will be retrieved and used automatically. This makes it easy to keep your automation scripts secure and free of hard-coded passwords.
