Decrypting passwords with C/C++ (and other non-Python) SDKs

11 - Bolide

The Python SDK provides a facility on the engine object to decrypt passwords encrypted with the HTML SDK.  This seems to be an addition made to the Python SDK as this method does not exist on the C engine API.  I thought maybe the passwords were encrypted using DPAPI, but I've not been able to get it to work.  How can we decrypt passwords outside of the Python SDK?

Hey there!


Unfortunately right now it's not possible (as far as I'm aware, and I've looked into it recently as well.) It's something we have documented as a need for any future roadmap items for SDKs.
