Are you referring to Global Preferred Credentials?  

Non-global preferred credentials are set specifically for each user.

Global preferred credentials can be set by an Admin for all administrators at one time (provided they have operator/full/full any target privileges).  

By setting global preferred credentials an EM user, will be able to access or login to any target that they have operator or full permissions on. This may not be what you're looking for if you want users to login with their own database account for example.

I tried to figure out the differences between non-global credentials and global (scoped) credentials.


It seems the only difference is that 

+ non-global credentials have to be granted to users or roles explicitly
+ global credentials can be used by anyone having OEM system privileges FULL [ANY] TARGET or OPERATOR ANY TARGET
Did I miss something? Cheers, Markus --
