The Secure Value Retrieval Data Operation

Zack Cohen Zack Cohen

Overview

The Secure Value Retrieval data operation is used to retrieve securely entered data via the Secure Text Input Web Control for later use in a Data Flow. The Secure Value Retrieval Data Operation input is the Redis value collected from an event on the Secure Text Input Web Control.

Important Note: secure data should only be retrieved and used in connections. It should not be returned from a connection. If it is, the end-user client will then have access to it, and the data will no longer be secure.

Use Cases

  • Fetching a password from a password input box.
  • Retrieving secure information like a social security number from a user.
  • Taking in credit card information.

Data Operation Properties

This Operation only has one property, and it requires the Redis key to access the secure value entered in a Secure Text Input Web Control. This is how the value is set to a property on the Web Page.

Then make a call to a connection with that value:
