PN Admin guide should clarify which telnet sequence are supported on Execution of commands.
When user execute NCCM job/Command builder (also transaction manager, etc) PN give the user option to put specific Creds, when "Ask for user credentials when running device configuration operations" is checked.

Example of sequence that is not supported
Password:
Router> en
Password:

For the devices with the unsupported sequence the check box "Ask for user credentials when running device configuration operations" in PN Administration should not be checked.
