Scenario: We are currently running 7 bots on production. One of the bot has special character ‘[’ in the password. Orchestrator is allowing us to save the asset with special characters. But, “Get Credential” activity is not able to read the complete password (SECURE STRING format) due to the special character ‘[’ present in it. Hence, the bot is not able to login to the business applications.
Workaround: Convert the SECURE STRING datatype into STRING using System.Net.NetworkCredential(String.Empty, secStrTom_Password). But, it is not safe to store the password in STRING format.
Steps to reproduce: Store the password on Orchestrator with special character ‘[’. Use Get Credential Activity to read the password.
Current Behavior: Get Credential" activity unable to read the complete password due to the special character ‘[’ present in it. We need to convert the SECURE STRING datatype into STRING as a workaround.
Expected Behavior: Get Credential" activity should allow to read the complete password in SECURE STRING format only.
