Questions & Answers

I find environmental variables quite nice for storing usernames and passwords, among other settings. But how secure is this? Where and how are these environmental variables stored on the local host?

Your custom environmental variables are stored in a plain text file named IguanaEnv.txt, which is located in your working directory. If you require additional security for your configurations, we would recommend using our encrypt password module (see the help document below for more details). Note that this would only be applicable for any configurations that are called from a translator script.

Help Document
We currently use the Chameleon application to exchange information, and we would like to replace it with Iguana. How easy is it to migrate from Chameleon to Iguana?

Migrating to Iguana is fairly straightforward. We have several APIs that help facilitate this process, such as the chm.parse() or chm.transform() functions which can be used to help you migrate your old mappings into the Translator (see the help document below). For any additional assistance, feel free to reach out to our support team at support@interfaceware.com
