Re: [QF-Test] How to set password in a login dialog

Hello Rado,

QF-Test handles the password as test-data like a username or any other
test-input up-to-now. That's why you don't see it encrypted.

If you really want to use your own user in the tests, you have to read the
password out of an encrypted file and set the password variable in an
server-script node (Insert Node -> Control structures -> Server script) to
the according value. If you do so, you won't see the password in the
test-suite window itself, but you could still see the password in the
run-log. But that might be the best approach.

Our recommendation for testing with a logon-screen is to set-up certain
test-users with a pre-defined set of permissions, independent from any
test-engineer. So each tester can start the tests without having permission

BTW: At QFS we have also internal discussions about how to handle passwords
in QF-Test as well.

Hi all,

I have an application which displays a logon dialog on startup. I want
logon procedure be part of my test, but don't want the password be
in my QFT file. In other words, the test sequence should fill the logon
dialog, and send the credentials to the server (whatever). My problem is,
that the password is in a readable form in the QFT file (and of course, in
qftest GUI). Is there a way of "encrypting" or "hiding" the password, or a
similar way of preventing of other testers from knowing my password
I'm going to show my tests to other testers).

I've tried to search the archive, but haven't found an answer so far.

Thank you in advance,
