User ID and Password

If the database connection requires a user id and a password, then type the user id into the User ID field and the password into the Password field.

Z and I Emulator for Web encrypts the key sequence that you type into the Password field. This encryption works exactly like the encryption used when the Password checkbox is selected in an Input action (see Password). Remember:
  • When you type a password (such as mypass) into the Password field, the Macro Editor displays the password using asterisks (******).
  • When you move the input focus to another input field, the Macro Editor:
    1. Generates an encrypted version of the password (such as q0eqOskTUBQ=).
    2. Displays the encrypted version of the password in the Password field using asterisks (************). (You can see the actual characters of the encrypted version of the password in the Code Editor.)
  • The password is a string. Therefore, if you are using the advanced macro format, remember to type the password enclosed in single quotes (for example, 'mypass'). The Macro Editor encrypts the entire string, including the single quotes.
  • If you need to modify the password after the Macro Editor has encrypted it, be sure to completely delete all the characters in the field before typing in the new password.
