Hi, 

I’m using a python script which sends an Email via SMTP for a specific process. I wanted to pass the credential variables to my script, but it’s not allowed to pass a credential variable to a function. Is there a way to solve this issue?

So basically I want to fetch the username and password from Automation Anywhere Credentials and pass it to my python script.

Best Regards

Emil

Hi Hakan, unfortunately there is no update. It is not possible to pass Credentials to a script, since it is only accepting String Variables. It is also not possible to convert a Credential Variable to a String Variable. I did not find a workaround yet. If I find a solution, I’ll share it here!

Hi embitious,

 

there is a Package in the Bot Store called Credential Manager Package which should do the job, converting the Credential to a local variable.
