Encrypt & Decrypt password in custom alert

Hi Team,

We want to encrypt the password that we are using in custom alert, is there any splunk library in python to encrypt and decrypt the password.

You could google "python crypto libraries"... but why didn't you before posting? Perhaps you're looking for the easy button.

In that case, the easiest button i have would be to build your custom alert using the addon builder. It's drag and drop functionality coupled with its password field encryption ability saves you a lot of time.

I am trying to set up a custom alert which will invoke my script by passing variables such as username, password, sourcefile path and destinationpath but when we are trying to decrypt the password using Fernet and cryptography libraries in the script we are getting module error.

Could you please help?

I can help you do it with add on builder but first you have to try so you can ask relevant questions.

I can not help you with python libraries otherwise.

Hi @manishsingh777,

What are you trying to achieve exactly ? Are you building a custom alert action ?
