  1. use Read Text file to read Text from notepad file and store it in a string variable.

  2. Then apply String manipulation functions or regular expression to fetch password from that String.

  3. check below thread to convert String to secure string and then pass it to Type Secure text Activity to type password.

use Decrtypt Text activity and pass this key to decrypt the encrypted text.


After reading the text from text file and you are storing it in a string variable.

Then check below in IF condition

IF textOutput.Contains(“false”) then do encrypt text.

textOutput.replace("false’,“true”) - To replace false with true.

now it is encrypting
now not updating in the same file

Have you used this method to replace the text. After this, again you have to write this output into text file by using Write Text activity. Then only it will update.

ya I did,
false to true is replaced but not encrypted pwd

Please share your workflow with me.

I have uploaded the file check it


Here, you used Write Text activity two times.

First time it wrote encrypted text and then again you are updating status. That time it will override the previous content.

To overcome this issue, use Append Line activity instead of Write Text activity.

if I use append I am getting like this
