Secrets Vault is a component in WorkFusion Intelligent Automation Cloud designed for storing sensitive information.
The data stored in Secrets Vault isn't shown in recordings, logs, system files or bot configs. It allows sharing scripts with other users without exposing confidential data.
To use Secrets Vault, go to Window > Preferences > WorkFusion Studio > Secrets Vault.
To add an entry to the Secrets Vault, do as follows.
- Press Add.
Insert Alias, Key, and Value. The changes are saved automatically.
- Alias serves to distinguish secret entries and must be unique as it will be used in recordings.
Key and Value are designed to save login and password information, respectively.
If you need to save only one secure data record, you can save it in either the Key or Value field at your choice and leave the other one empty.
The data in the Key and Value fields is encrypted, and you cannot view it when opening Secrets Vault, or editing the entry.
Editing and Deleting Entries
To edit an entry, click on the field you want to edit and insert the new data. The changes are saved automatically.
To delete an existing entry, click on the entry and press Remove.
The changes made to secret entries are not automatically reflected for recorder variables. You have to update the values in recorder variables manually.
