Author Posts June 1, 2016 at 8:05 pm #41276 TyMacParticipant Is there an accepted procedure to encrypt the data in a "ConfigurationData.psd1" file? I don't want to leave IP or hostnames (etc) in config files that are checked in to source code. June 1, 2016 at 8:11 pm #41278 Don JonesKeymaster There's nothing native, no. You can certainly encrypt it manually, knowing that you'll have to manually decrypt it before feeding it to your configuration script.

This is relatively common. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
