Current session's credentials

The Current session's credentials options will use the OTP credentials setup in the entry Common - General - Credentials section. Credentials options available with OTP are My personal credentials, My privileged account and Embedded (this mode is deprecated and not recommended).

In a team environment, we recommend using the Linked (vault) option instead with a One Time Password (OTP) credential entry.
