I have a Collection: FTPDetails.
With Fields: FTP_server, FTP_username, FTP_password.

I am using field-type as ‘password’ for FTP_password, data is getting stored with encryption but unable to get the data back when called via http.
Please let me know how can I get the decrypted data via http call.

Thank you!

Password fields cannot be fetched, you will need to select a different field type or customize the controller and write your own sanitization function.

As you can see here:

const { sanitizeEntity } = require('strapi-utils');

And the code for that function is here: strapi/sanitize-entity.js at master · strapi/strapi · GitHub

Specifically we are stripping any password fields out:
