PLCnext Engineer has a great feature that stores your Creditials when connecting to the PLCnext.

When Logging into a Controller, an added check-box was put in that allows you to 'Remember Creditials'.

This alleviated the need to enter the admin and password each time you wanted to log on, etc...when in the software.


The issue is when you upgrade your PLCnext Engineer, you have to start over with each controller and 'Remember Creditials' for each PLCnext controller again.

All of the PLCs that you have used in the past are now forgotten.


Is there a way (or will there be a way) to have the 'Stored' creditials transerred or moved to the newer version of PLCnext Engineer ?


Thank you !

Hello Peter,

this sounds like a good feature.
I will forward this request to the PLCnext Engineer PM to find out if it is maybe already in progress.

kind regards,
