API Versions: V2

Parent: outputs

Compatible Job Types: All

Example: s3_production


References the nickname of saved credentials to use for transfer.

Credentials can only be used with URLs that match their type; for example, S3 credentials paired with an FTP URL will be rejected.


A username or password in the URL (like sftp://username:password@server/video.mp4) will take precedence over both the credentials parameter and any default credentials.
