We are using Data driven framework and store them in ALM. For the application we are automating right now has user’s SSO credentials to login, it has to be mentioned in datatables. Is there a way to secure the password when we store the data tables in ALM? Any suggestions please..

I'm not sure how robust of a solution you require, but you might want to look at two possible options in UFT - the password encoder tool to encrypt the data to paste into the datatable or using the Data Pane option to encrypt a parameter.

You would then need to make sure you use a SetSecure instead of a Set method where you using the parameter data.
