Generate new password and set credential


#1

What is the use case

Where applications regularly force password changes and these changes need to be replicated onto orchestrator credential asset for future runs. This also satisfies various controls and compliance regulations ref the developer having access to all passwords for robot accounts - once the robot is in production we must request a password reset via the normal channels should anything go wrong.

How do you see a solution for the use case?

This component generates the new password using a sha1 hash generator, manipulates it slightly and saves it to the credential. To be used within a workflow which checks for change password prompt, it also returns the new password to be entered into the application in the main workflow.
