Get password and SecureString


I’m using the activity “Get password” to secure store a password, then use it with a “Type secure text” activity.

The problem is that “Get password” is requesting a “string” as ouput variable, and not a SecureString. (“” cannot be converted to “string”)

How to deal with this ?

Thank you

Thank you for your answer, i already found this topic but no luck to apply it.

The problem is still there, maybe this one is an issue/idea ?

Get Password is deprecated. As @beesheep said you should use the credential activities (which yet return string as well)
