Decrypting Passwords using Python SDK

8 - Asteroid

Hi @TashaA 

 

Can I pass this decrypted password to the connection string to connect to the database in python? If not, then could you please suggest how can I do that?

 

Any help would be appreciable!! Thanks in advance

Hi there @RuchikaMangla !

 

You need to use the decrypt password method. It is documented here:
