Description

 

Password Vault Manager is a feature rich program that has an extensive set of functionality. Here are the major concepts that are important to understand in order to use the program to its full potential.

 

Data source

 

A container for entries. It can be a local file, a database (either local or shared), or our own Devolutions Online Database service. You can use multiple distinct data sources in the program, although only one is considered active at one point in time. See data source Overview for more information.

 

Entry

 

All items in your data source are entries. There are multiple types and sometimes even sub-types. The entry is an abstract concept that serves as a container for all specific types.

 

Credential entry

 

A credential entry is used to control access to a resource by identifying the user. It can be a classic username/password pair held by the program, or even by an external source.

 

Information entry

 

An information entry is meant to contain various information like account information, emails, serial numbers. It's principal use in Password Vault Manager is to hold Web site information, from the URL to the credentials. This allows auto login on the specified web site.
