The following are the fields in the General (TL1) page:

General Parameters

ID -- An identifying name for this authentication object.

Use for EMS-- Checking this lets this application--the entire element management system (EMS)--use this authentication. Otherwise, authentications are only available to individual users who have permissions to use them.

If none of the associated credentials are marked Use for EMS then the software chooses the set of authentications to which the current user has access. Administrators typically use this capability to control access to cut-thru session capabilities (read vs. read-write) when a command line interface is present to the managed device.


Resync fails if you do not check this box.

Select TL1 Parameters
