Remote Desktop Manager typing macro to perform authentication

With Remote Desktop Manager, it is possible to send credentials through a typing macro using variables.

  1. Open the Properties of a Website session entry. In the left menu, make sure you are in Common – General.
  2. Click the Login tab to access the Settings section.
  3. Check the Autofill login box and uncheck the Auto submit box.
  4. In the left menu, navigate to the Security – Security Settings section.
  5. Under Password, check the Allow password in variable option box. This option needs to be checked so that the typing macro can send the password to the remote session.

If the option is greyed out, you need to activate Allow password variables for all entries and Allow password variable in macros in Administration – System Settings – Password Policy.

Also, if you are using the Linked (vault) credential mode in your entry, you will need to enable the Allow password in variable option in the linked credential entry as well.


  1. In the left menu, navigate to Connection – Events.
  2. Click on the After Open tab. In the Typing macro section, paste the following: $USERNAME${TAB}$PASSWORD${ENTER}.
  3. Click OK to save.
