Configure the Remove Secure Credential activity

To configure the Remove Secure Credential activity, do the procedure in this topic.

Prerequisites

  • To use this activity, you must have activities in this order:

    Set Secure Credential activity > one or more activities for an external system, such as Database > Remove Secure Credential activity (optional)

Good to Know

  • ​​To send an e-mail notification, click Advanced Advanced icon > E-mail Notifications E-mail Notifications icon.

    For more information, refer to Configure E-mail Notifications for Any Activity.

  • If you have more than one activity following a Set Secure Credentials activity that uses the same type of data source defined in the Set Secure Credentials activity, all of the access tokens for those activities will be overridden, even if they use different access tokens.

    For example, in this process design, both the access tokens for two different databases, DB1 and DB2, would be overridden by the Set Secure Credentials activity:

    Set Secure Credentials > Update Record (DB1) > Delete Record (DB2)

    To avoid this problem, add a Remove Secure Credentials activity:

    Set Secure Credentials > Update Record (DB1) > Remove Secure Credentials > Delete Record (DB2)

  • You can configure whether this activity waits for other activities before it runs.

    For more information, refer to How Do I Configure an Activity to Wait for Other Incoming Activities?
