My client uses simple Selenium IDE scripts for regression testing. The issue is that when the scripts are shared, people's AD usernames and passwords are shared too.
I'm trying to put a stop to this by having a test account created with a shared password but they're not convinced this is a better way to go because of the security risk. I realise it's the same thing as what they're doing now... but that's a different discussion.
Anyway, is possible to mask the password in the IDE or call an external file with the test username and password in? I think that would convince them to provide QA with a test account and not inherit the risk of fraudulent activity.
