Example Secret Input

This Apify actor showcases how to use secret fields in the actor input.

Setting an input field as secret

To make an input field secret, just set "isSecret": true to the field in the actor's INPUT_SCHEMA.json, like this:

{
    // ...
    "properties": {
        // ...
        "password": {
            "title": "Password",
            "type": "string",
            "description": "A secret, encrypted input field",
            "editor": "textfield",
            "isSecret": true
        },
        // ...
    },
    // ...
}

The editor for this input field will then turn into a secret input, and when you edit the field value, it will be stored encrypted. Secret input editor

Reading secret input fields

When you read the actor input through Actor.getInput(), the encrypted fields are automatically decrypted, without any additional code needed.

> await Actor.getInput();
{
    username: 'username',
    password: 'password'
}

If you read the INPUT key from the actor run's default key-value store directly, you will still get the original, encrypted input value.

> await Actor.getValue('INPUT');
{
    username: 'username',
    password: 'ENCRYPTED_VALUE:Hw/uqRMRNHmxXYYDJCyaQX6xcwUnVYQnH4fWIlKZL2Vhtq1rZmtoGXQSnhIXmF58+DjKlMZpTlK2zN3YUXk1ylzU6LfXyysOG/PISAfwm27FUgy3IfdgMyQggQ4MydLzdlzefX0mPRyixBviRcFhRTC+K7nK9lkATt3wJpj91YAZm104ZYkcd5KmsU2JX39vxN0A0lX53NjIenzs3wYPaPYLdjKIe+nqG9fHlL7kALyi7Htpy91ZgnQJ1s9saJRkKfWXvmLYIo5db69zU9dGCeJzUc0ca154O+KYYP7QTebJxqZNQsC8EH6sVMQU3W0qYKjuN8fUm1fRzyw/kKFacQ==:VfQd2ZbUt3S0RZ2ciywEWYVBbTTZOTiy'
