Sensitive Variables Needed Back


We have a lot of sensitive variables in Octopus which we need back. Is there a way to change them so they are no longer sensitive? If not, is there an easy way to extract them from the database possible?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for getting in touch! I am sorry to say that no, you cannot get a sensitive variable back.
We explain this a little in our documentation.
The only way to re-use that variable as non-sensitive is to delete it and re-add it with the same name.
But you can never retrieve what was sensitive in a non-sensitive way.

Sorry if this is crappy news.

@mike perhaps just make a file that uses the variables and then print them to console / fetch the transformed file from disk once deployed.

@Andrew thanks, great idea. I was able to do just that!
