Mappings that contain user-defined functions (UDFs) can be imported into other mappings, see Calling and Importing User-Defined Functions. If the imported mapping contains credentials, then credentials appear as imported in Credentials Manager. Imported credentials are shown with a yellow background.
By default, imported credentials are not saved with the main mapping, but you can optionally create a local copy and save them in the main mapping. A warning dialog box appears to that effect whenever you attempt to edit an imported credential from the main mapping.
|Note:||If both the imported mapping and the main contain credentials with the same, name collisions may occur. If this happens, the credential from the main mapping takes precedence. To avoid name collisions, ensure that credential names are unique within the scope of a mapping and all its imported UDFs.|
