Remarks

Credentials provide SQL Server authenticated users with an identity outside of SQL Server, on the local machine or on the network domain.

Credentials can also be used when a SQL Server authenticated user needs access to a domain resource, such as a file location to store a backup.

To get Credential object properties, users can be a member of the public fixed server role.

To set Credential object properties and run the Alter method, users must have ALTER ANY CREDENTIAL permission on the parent server, or be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role.

To create a credential, users must have ALTER ANY CREDENTIAL permission on the parent server, or be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role.

To drop a credential, users must have ALTER ANY CREDENTIAL permission on the parent server, or be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role.

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are safe for multithreaded operations. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
