Assign VIM Protocol credentials to Activity Template

I have set up a discovery activity template for vSphere Scanning using the following jobs:

Manual VMWare VIM Connection
Range IPs by ICMP
VMware VirtualCenter Connection by VIM
VMware VirtualCenter Topology by VIM

and created a Zone-based Discovery Mgmt-Zone for a single vCenter server IP and assigned this template to the Mgmt Zone. Since we have multiple vCenter servers with all different VIM Credentials, I want to assign a specific VIM Credential to this specific Mgmt Zone (or this activity based on the template). How is this possible?

Re: Assign VIM Protocol credentials to Activity Template

You don't have to create separate Management zones for different Vcenters. Just restrict your VIM Credential to a specific Vcenter server (specify the venter IP and probe in the scope of VIM credential).

Then create only 1 Management zone and map all the vcenter server IPs by choosing partial probe range.

Create a job with your already created template.
