Global credentials

In this section, you will be able to perform two actions: Add credentials at the organization level and perform the connection via OAuth to the providers, which are: GitLab - GitHub - Bitbucket - Azure.

Organization credentials

You can store the credentials at the organization level and use them in all the groups that make up the organization. To see the credentials that exist, you have to go to the main page in the tab called credentials.

Main Page

Credentials table

Here you can see the list of all the credentials created in the organization you are located in. In total, we have three columns which are described below:

Credentials table

  • Name: The name of the credential.
  • Type: Which type of credential it is, can be HTTPS, SSH or Azure DevOps PAT. You can also see in this column the connection of the providers via OAuth.
  • Owner: The person who created the credential.


In the Global Credentials section, you have four functionalities:


To add an credential, you have to click on the Add Credential button.

Add individual

Clicking on it will allow you to add via OAuth or individually.

Add other

Below we show you how to add it individually; if you want to know how to do it via OAuth, you can enter here.

When you click on the Add other, you will get a pop-up window where you can add new credentials.

Add Credentials

Here, you will have to enter a unique credential name and select the credential type ( HTTPS, SSH or Azure DevOps PAT).


To edit an existing credential, you have to select which one you want to edit. A pop-up window will appear, where you have to click on the toggle that says New secrets to enable editing of the credential and change its information.

Edit Credentials

According to the Credential type will enable the fields for editing.


To delete a credential, you have to select which one you want to delete; a warning window will appear asking for your confirmation.

Remove Credentials

The following are some points to keep in mind regarding credentials:

  • If the credential is removed, it is also removed from all the git roots used.
  • When a member is removed from the organization, then their credentials are removed from that organization.
  • The owner of the credentials is the last one that edited the credential's secrets.

The search bar filters the information contained in the columns of the table.

Add repositories via OAuth

You can connect directly to code service providers such as GitLab - GitHub - Bitbucket - Azure from the ARM platform via OAuth (Open Authorization), which will allow us to connect the ARM to the provider, where users authorize the flow of access and thus will be able to access all the repositories that you have in these.

service providers

Note: These are the four providers that support the ARM.

We will now perform a step-by-step example using the GitLab provider.

The first step is to go to the Global Credentials view, where you can select the provider of your convenience that you want to authorize to connect to the ARM.

Gitlab provider

When you click on it, you will be redirected to the provider's authorization page, where you will be asked to authorize the connection between the ARM and your account. When you click on Authorize, the connection between these two services will be established.

Authorize provider

When you authorize, you will be redirected to the ARM to the Global Credentials view, where you can see the new credential created as OAuth.

credential create

Note: The service you select will no longer be shown in since the connection has already been made.

With this connection with your provider we will be able to access your organization and, with this, to all the repositories that you have there. It will take into account the repositories that have had activity in the last 60 days. To see the list of these, you can do it in the Outside section.


Note: The list of repositories that are listed in this view are repositories that are not associated with any group of that specific organization in the ARM. To see these, you must wait about 30 minutes to 1 hour while the service connection is made.

OAuth functionalities

Remove oauth connection

You can remove the OAuth credential by selecting the credential to be removed followed by the Remove button.

oauth remove

Note: The credential will be removed along with its repositories listed in the Outside section.
