Exchange Scope - Password Question

Hi All!

I was wondering if anyone know why the password field of the Exchange scope is just a string field instead of a secure string?

Is there a way to get a secure string from Orchestrator and convert it so I don’t have to store the password in plain text?


yes, you can use:

string password = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(string.Empty, securePassword).Password

Thanks @bcorrea, that works for me…do you happen to know why this activity is setup this way?

to be honest, securestring is not really secure anyway so it does not make a lot of difference, i imagine they think more people will just type the password there…

Type the password in the workflow?! Oh no!
