HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Application server - encrypting the profile properties files

You use the encryptProfileProperties script to encrypt passwords in the following WebSphere Application Server property files:
  • <WAS_profile_path>/properties/soap.client.props
  • <WAS_profile_path>/properties/sas.client.props
  • <WAS_profile_path>/properties/sas.stdclient.properties
  • <WAS_profile_path>/properties/sas.tools.properties
where WAS_profile_path corresponds to the WebSphere Application Server profile path you specified when you installed one of the following components: master domain manager, backup master domain manager, dynamic domain manager, backup dynamic domain managers. The default path is: TWA_home/WAS/TWSprofile.

An example of when you might use the encryption function is when creating SSL key-stores. You would type the passwords in the key-stores and then encrypt them using the encryptProfileProperties script. See HCL Workload Automation: Planning and Installation.

The script uses PropFilePasswordEncoder.bat. Restart the server for the changes to take effect.

Encrypt properties uses the following syntax: Application server - encrypting the profile properties files
encryptProfileProperties.bat (.sh)
