Transport Management Through Web Services

We have created a page to manage ftp and database transports through web services. I have two questions in this regard.

1. The soap object for these transports seems to require a password for submission. This makes things a little inconvenient if there is a password already populating the field in the database. What is the intended way to handle them? Am I expected to decrypt the returned field and pass it back? Or should they just re-enter a password every time?

2. I don't see any way to test transports outside of the WCMS interface. Is this correct?

    Hi,

    You should be able to simply pass back the value you got from the read operation, which as you indicated, will be encrypted.

    You are correct, there is currently no way to test Transports or Destinations directly using Web Services. If you would like to have this functionality considered for a future release of Cascade, I highly recommend posting a suggestion to our Idea Exchange.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    So, for example, I create a transport with the password “password” in the WCMS. Then through web services, I read that item and it returns an encrypted password that looks something like “RRebq0L6JKyqeCdzKIv3C1WMmrnDD4cyJcUfXHxFkmM=”. Are you saying that if I pass that back on an edit operation, it won’t attempt to re-encrypt it as a different password?

    Hi,

    That is correct, when updating the Transport, Web Services will check to see if a new password is provided and update accordingly; otherwise, the password will be left along. If that is not the case, please let me know and we will investigate the issue further.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
