In this URL –, I have given the below details under both File and File Level tabs:

Input File – config.yaml
Output File Name – secure-config.yaml
Key – secure-config (key can be any name, right ?)

But, when I’m clicking on Generate button, no file is getting created.
Please assist.

If I’m giving single key-value under String tab, then it’s generating me an encrypted value.
