You are out of the box, There is no way to recover the password hence you loss your script. If there is no backup, Need to done developer job again.

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

Sorry, but you can't do that. The purpose of hidden script and password is that no-one should be able to see the script without knowing the secret.

Without an backup you will need to recreate your script.😟

Please ekskuse my Norglish and Swenglish typos.

Re: Hidden script Password forget

Just want to provide an explanation as to why hidden script passwords are not recoverable, and that is due to us not being able to determine whose intellectual property it is, that is the rationale behind the decision, to protect developers that do hide things to keep their customers from using their intellectual property without their approval.

The downside is if you are the one that created things and lock yourself out, you are stuck, but there is really no way for us to prove one way or the other who did things etc., and that is why things are the way they are, hope this helps everyone understand better and to be sure those hidden passwords get stored somewhere safe for future administrators that may need to get into things.

Regards,
Brett
