How to protect sensitive data inside Convertigo?
Sometimes, you have to put some sensitive data in Convertigo objects, such as passwords. This is specially true when you have to handle test cases in which you put credentials.
Since C-EMS 5.5.0, Convertigo provides you the way to hide them and protect your data.
I would say there are two families of protection: user interface protection and data storage protection. Indeed, sensitive data can be seen in:
The first three ones belong to the user interface protection family, and and the last two ones belong to the data storage protection family.
Convertigo helps you to protect your sensitive data for both families.
Create a transaction called Login, containing two variables (parameters) called username and password.
If you select the password variable of your test case, you will find a property named Visibility. Edit this property.
You then will be able to mask the value of your password in log files, in studio user interface, in test platform and in project's XML definition files.
If you check one (or more) of these options, then your password data will be masked (for display purposes such as the studio and the test platform) or ciphered (such as in log files and project's XML files) with a high level of encryption before being written to files.
For highest level of protection, select all protection options.
The Visibility property is also available for default values of transactions/sequences variables.
In the Convertigo Studio :
On test platform of Convertigo Studio :
You are now able to protect any sensitive data inside your Convertigo solution, whether you are concerned with the user interface protection or the data storage protection.
