You can update a cloud's credentials after you have added it to vCloud Connector.

The privileges or rights that are associated with the type of account you use to add the cloud determine the operations you can perform with vCloud Connector. For example, if you add a vCloud Director cloud with a vApp User role, you will not be able to copy from that cloud because you don't have the required rights to download a vApp template.

For access to complete functionality, use an Organization Administrator or System Administrator role, or a modified role that has equivalent rights, for a vCloud Director cloud. Similarly, for a vSphere cloud, use an Administrator account or an equivalent role.

The cloud has been added to your vCloud Connector instance and vCloud Connector is open.

Update the user name and password in the Update Cloud dialog box, then click Update.
