Is there a way to use an encrypted password for RQMURLUtility?


Pierre Bentkowski (96517) | asked May 05 '21, 10:30 a.m.
I need to call the  RQMURLUtility in a PUB (RPE) template.

When doing the call I need top provide the user id and the password.
I do not want the user to provided them manual.
I can use the following PUB Internal Variable: _sessionInfo.getDatasourceProperty

When I get the password
_sessionInfo.getDatasourceProperty("aDataSource","password", "")
    
I get an encrypted version of the password.

Is there a way to use that encrypted password for the RQMURLUtility?
Or get a clear version of the password from _sessionInfo?

Thank you

 Please use clear version of the password. it can not accept encrypted version of the password.

That defeat the whole purpose.

Doing this would mean that the user will need enter the password in clear in a PUB template variable.

Is the _sessionInfo.getDatasourceProperty can be set to return the clear password?

What is the purpose of getting a encrypted password? Who can consume it?
