Passwords and Security

Warning

We strongly recommend to use variables instead of plain text passwords at any time. Such variables can be defined and maintained only in the user interface of Video Toolkit (Admin->Secrets)

Note

Either "Superuser" or "Configuration" permissions are needed by the user

Once a password was saved as an organizational secret, any tool which requires a password can be run by using the variable instead.

Example:

{
    "tool": "shaka:package_dash",
    "parameters": {
        "password": "{drmtoday:api}",
        ...
        ...
    }
}
