Credentials are commonly a user name and a password. The Performance Data Collection portlet validates credentials to confirm that users have the right, or permissions, to execute jobs against the Teradata Database. For example, if you want to set retention periods or alerts for jobs, you need to have credentials that the system considers valid.
