New function for encoding hexadecimal data

Recently, we introduced several new functions for encoding and hashing (described in more detail in our knowledge base article) for use in Multi-step API monitors. In some cases, however, users may need to combine two of such functions, by encoding the result of a hashing function. For example, certain applications of authorization require converting a value to Base64.

This lead to a data type mismatch — the result of a hashing function is a hexadecimal value, where the (Base64) encoding function is meant to be used with a string. To bridge this gap, we’ve introduced a new HexToBase64() function, which will allow users to encode the result of a hashing function correctly. See our knowledge base article on hashing for more information.
