Encrypted properties with newlines

I am using an encrypted property to store an SSH key to install using a software component. What is the correct way to store it in a property with the needed linefieeds?

Have you tried the normal characters to see if they don't work?

On a Linux VM I use an echo command to get the key into the needed file and it is created but the \n is replaced with spaces.

You may need to use sed in the configure phase to apply those line feeds.

It seems no matter what i put in, it really doesn't like having the \n in actions (for the sed portion) or baked into the property itself.

Try creating a variable and specifying \n as a literal string, then using sed to replace using that variable. If you give me a better idea exactly what you're trying to put in and where I can possibly test.
