Keyboard Maestro has two actions for working with the OSX Keychain:
A) Set Keychain Password to Text
B) Set Variable to Keychain Password
When I first started fooling with item B I noted that it worked with some passwords and failed with others – so I gave up and ignored it.
Since the issue has come up on the forum a couple of times since then, I asked Peter to explain and got the straight scoop.
These actions ONLY work with Generic Passwords – they do NOT work with Internet Passwords – which completely explains the problems I was having.
This one macro is an example of Setting a Keychain Password and then Getting it.
