Sensitive data

Updated on October 19, 2022

Sensitive values like passwords or Personally Identifiable Information should never show in logs on the automation surface. Robot Studio helps ensure that sensitive data is protected.

  • A sensitive-data variable has been added, to use as an input/output parameter or local/global variable.
  • You can use the Property Grid to mark existing variables as sensitive.
  • Robot Studio automatically marks interrogated password controls as sensitive.
  • You can mark other interrogated controls as sensitive.

A lock icon indicates sensitive data on the automation block, as shown in the following figure:

You can mark text as sensitive (Sensitive = true) on the Property Grid, as shown in the following figure:
