Web Service Calls - Passing credentials

Question asked by ciodonovan on Mar 2, 2016

Hi all,

 

My webservice call requires that I pass a Username & Password to the login() WebMethod of the other application.

I cant use a managed constant as it wont let me place 'sensitive' strings into these reference fields.

Normal user AD accounts can't be used here, because their passwords are set to expire in AD.

Service (Managed) accounts in AD can't be used or stored in Managed Constant strings, because they can be viewed/outputted which means the security of the password is compromised.

 

So is there any way that a credential can be securely passed to a field like this without exposing it to the workflow creator?

I know I could prompt the user for the credentials in an initiation form, but I'd like to not have to do it that way.

 

Thanks
