The password is safely stored in the keychain and it can be retrieved from the keychain with this function without the user needing to enter the (keychain) password. The keychain is unlocked when the user logs in to the operating system.
If you specify an account and/or yourID combination for which no password exists, the plug-in returns error code $$-25300.
Get Password from Keychain [ $Password ; "John Deere" ]
This will get the password for the user “John Deere” from the keychain, and the result will be for example “secret”.
Get Password from Keychain [ $Password ; "Sales" ; "Invoices|Notes|REC1001" ]
This will get the password from the keychain which was previously stored with the Save Password to Keychain step and the account parameter “Sales” and the yourID parameter “Invoices|Notes|REC1001”.
You can now use this returned password to decrypt text in a field, for example with the Encr_DecryptAES function.
