Encrypt your Data Feed

Posted on October 20, 2014 by Jacques van der Wilt

Your feeds sometimes contain data that you would rather not share. An example: your product URLs can tell your competitors a lot. You may have added tracking code, product types and lots more.

DataFeedWatch enables you to encrypt any output field:

1. Click Edit values
2. At the bottom of the fold out, tick the checkbox for Encrypt Output.

DFW Encrypt

3. Enter your own secret code. It is a simple but effective encryption. In this example:
a is replaced by z
b is replaced by y
c is replaced by x

4. If you only want to encrypt a specific part of the field, you can specify that with a regular expression (regexp). In the example screenshot, everything behind will be encrypted.

Don’t forget: You need to be able to decrypt those values as well.
