Variables displayed in the Report

Post by Jaya » Fri Aug 01, 2014 11:26 am

Hi, Is there any way where we can hide the variables imported from Excel sheet, to be displayed in the renorex report.

e.g in my test if i use Username and password from excel sheet, the report displays username and password.

If i dont want anyone to see my credetails is it possible?

Hi Jaya,

Unfortunately this is not possible directly, but you can, for example use an encrypted string in your excel sheet and decrypt the string only when you need it for the log in.
A colleague of mine posted an example how to encrypt and decrypt data using the .NET Framework.
The example can be found in the thread How do you handle data encryption in Ranorex?

While encrypting the values as Bernhard suggested will work, using a real, live account (especially your own) for testing is not recommended.

I would suggest that, instead of using YOUR credentials, you create a test user (or have your domain support team do it) that you use for testing.
