Removing encryption from datasets

To export an encrypted dataset into a CSV file, decrypt the dataset. Removing encryption from a dataset revokes the protection offered to the test data in it.

Before you begin

You must have created a test that contains a dataset with at least one encrypted column.


  1. Double-click the dataset in the Test Navigator. The dataset is displayed in a browser.
  2. Right-click the heading of the column from which you want to remove encryption and select Decrypt column. The Decrypt column pop-up window is displayed.
  3. Type the password that you used to encrypt the column.
  4. Click OK.


The encryption is now removed from the datasets.
