This scenario shows how to encrypt passwords using a user routine in Talend Studio, as an additional security measure.

Whether for a company or for an individual, passwords are always critical assets that should not be shared. You may want to have a way to hide your passwords in Talend Studio so that the passwords are not exposed to others.
