Dependency Configuration File - Regex

Root > Secret Server
In release version 7.8.00010 and later, Secret Server allows a Secret to have file dependencies. File dependencies allow text files with embedded credentials to be changed via Regex.

A Regular Expression (Regex) is a phrase in a language for matching text. For details on the .NET Regex language, see this site:

Secret Server will replace the contents of the first group within the Regex.

Some examples of using Regex within File dependencies are below.
