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. This Data Operation input is the secure value collected from an Event on the Secure Text Input Web Control.
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.
- Fetching a password from a password input box
- Retrieving secure information like a social security number from a user
- Taking in credit card information

By default, Airkit creates a variable of type Text called "secureValue" and can then be passed into subsequent operations.
