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 @chrisha 

 

to me also, it is giving me only encoded string, How can I retrieve the same string which I entered in the textbox?

I need to use it to connect to the database.

 

Thanks!

Hi there @RuchikaMangla !

 

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