I made on a desktop label for entry Web in required Vault. But at an input the Login & Pass window appears. It is possible to make something to add to this label for an automatic input under other specified user and without this window? Or any script or bat file?

It would be great if someone can tell me exactly what are the necessary requirements in an Assembly. I think it involves : a good number of views (2-4), bill of materials,title block, notes, clear dimensions, and some necessary center/projection/section lines right ? Thank you so much for all your help
