Modify a credential

You can modify an existing credential if needed. You can modify all parameters except the credential name. This shows you how to modify a credential from the CDP web interface. There is currently no way to modify a credential from CDP CLI.

The modify credential option is meant for cases such as updating your application’s password in case it expired or changed.

If the credential that you are trying to modify is already attached to an environment, ensure that the modification that you are making still allows access to the resources, such as the data lake, running within that environment.

Required role: SharedResourceUser or Owner


  1. Log in to the CDP web interface.

  2. Navigate to the Management Console.
  3. Select Shared Resources > Credentials from the navigation pane.

  4. Select the credential that you would like to modify and click on or navigate to the credential's details and click Edit.

  5. Provide the new credential information. You must provide all required parameters, even if they are same as previously.

  6. Click on Save.

    This updates the credential across all the environments that are currently using it.
If you would like to modify a credential from the CDP CLI, use cdp environments update-credential:
cdp environments update-azure-credential
 --credential-name <value>
 --subscription-id <value>
 --tenant-id <value>
 --app-based <value>
