User Prompt for Remote Connection Parameters

When records to be used for Remote Sessions are typically created, the owner of the record defines the connection parameters including Host, Port, User and Password. This allows the XTAM user to easily connect to this remote session with a single click, while ensuring the record’s are accurate. However, there are valid reasons where the record Owner would like the XTAM user to define their own host or user credentials during connection. This includes, but is certainly not limited to, Network Administrators who are used to or are permissioned to use their personal network credentials.

If you would like to configure this type of record, then please perform the following procedure in XTAM and then share this record with your users.

The ability to prompt users for connection parameters currently supports the record parameters Host, Port, User and Password.
