We have moved to a new documentation platform. This section is no longer supported. For the up-to-date information, see Secrets Vault in Control Tower.

WorkFusion platform provides Secrets Vault (formerly Secure Storage) functionality intended for storing sensitive data (i.e., login, password).

Managing Secrets Vault from Bot Configs

You can read, write, and delete records from Secrets Vault by using Secrets Vault Plugins (Secure Store Plugins).

Documentation on Secrets Vault Plugins is available in the Help section in WorkFusion Studio. To access it, in the WorkFusion Studio menu, go to Help > Help Contents > Bot Task Plugins > Secrets Vault Plugins (Secure Store Plugins).

Adding Secret Entry

To add a new secret entry, do as follows.

  1. Click the Add button above the grid. The following popup appears.
  2. Enter Alias, Key, and Value for this secret entry. Alias serves to distinguish secret entries and must be unique.

  3. Click Save.

As a result, a new entry appears in the grid.

To use secret entries created in WorkFusion Studio in your business processes, you need to create the same secret entries in Control Tower Secrets Vault.

Adding Bulk Entry

You can also create secret entries from a file (for example, if you want to create multiple entries).

  1. Create a CSV file with three columns: alias, key, value.

    alias, key, value
    mail,, password1
    s3, user-admin, password2
    crm,, password3
  2. Click the Upload Data button. The following popup appears.
  3. Click Add and browse the .csv file on your local machine.
  4. (Optional) Click the Options link and set File Separator and/or File Encoding, if needed.


We recommend using Comma separator and UTF-8 encoding.

Updating Existing Secret Entry

To edit a secret entry, proceed as follows.

  1. Hover over appropriate grid cell in the Alias column. The Update button appears.

  2. Click the Update button. The following popup appears.

    For security reasons, you cannot view secret entries. The message "No permission to view" is displayed.

  3. Enter new Key and New values. The Alias value cannot be modified.
  4. Click Update.

Deleting Secret Entries

  1. Tick checkboxes opposite the secret entries you need to delete.
  2. Click Delete.
