Note that our current version does not allow for moving data easily therefore we strongly recommend you use a team data source.There is no conflict management for the configuration file. If you share with other users you may get update conflicts and run into issues. This data source type is meant for a single user using multiple computers, not multiple users.

All passwords are encrypted by default. The XML file can be secured with a custom password (master key) to fully encrypt the content of the file. It's impossible to recover the data if the master key is lost. Please make sure to remember or backup the master key in a safe place.

Always ask master key

Always ask the Master key before opening the data source. The master key is used to encrypt the XML content. If the master key is lost it will be impossible to recover your data source.

Master key

Enter the master key of the XML file. Adding a Master key to an XML data source will NOT encrypt it. The master key can be set from a desktop client. For more information, please consult the Set a master key with Remote Desktop Manager for Windows topic.
