How to set custom SNMP credentials in Domotz

In this article, we will explain how to set up Domotz to deal with custom SNMP versions and credentials.

You have two main ways to set Simple Network Management Protocol credentials in Domotz:

– through the Device Details view, which can be used to set custom SNMP credentials for one device or for all the devices in your network.

– through the Search & Manage view, which allows you to select multiple devices and change their Simple Network Management Protocol credentials in a few clicks.

If you have multiple SNMP credentials that sit on the same network please jump to the appropriate section (2).

1. From Device Details view

Open one of your switches properties and select the Access Manager button:

Select the Access Manager button.

Click on “Edit the SNMP Authentication” pencil icon to edit the SNMP version and credentials:

Click on Edit the SNMP Authentication and edit its properties.

Please check the checkbox “Apply this as agent default and to all existing devices of the current agent” if you want to apply the custom SNMP to all devices in your agent.

2. From the Search & Manage view

By using this approach you will be able to select multiple devices and modify their credentials.

This is really useful when you do have multiple Simple Network Management Protocol credentials in your network.

Select multiple devices and modify their credentials.
Click on Edit Device details
