How to omit passwords from my scripts

Postby DanteA » Mon Jun 10, 2019 8:11 am

Morning.

I have encountered a problem where I have a login page. using my username and password I have to login.

Now my manager told me to mask the password in code itself.

How do I do this?

There is an option in eValid that will keep passwords "secret".

Typically, eValid records a script that includes the account name AND the password in plaintext, that is, human-readable form.

We didn't think it was safe to ALWAYS encrypt every string...that would make scripts too hard to read.

So you have to encrypt (and obfuscate) passwords just after recording (or at any time, actually) using the script window dialog.

Here it the manual page for how to do this.

The work YOU have to do is select (highlight) the strings in the recorded script that you want to hide.

Once you encode a string it will be decoded into plaintext automatically when it is needed in playing back the script.

Hope this solves your problem.
