  2. Double-click a cardholder.
  3. Click the Salto credential management button.
  4. From the list at the top of the dialog box, select Key credential or Manual key credential.
    NOTE: In order to have Manual key credential as an option, you must go to Config Tool > Plugins > Salto plugin role > Properties > Global settings, and switch the Enable manual key assignment option to ON.
  5. From the Encoders list, select the encoder that will apply the credential to the key.
  6. Place the key on the encoder.
