Encrypting passwords

You can encrypt or decrypt a password using the Manager tool. Moreover, you can generate a random encrypted password.

  • Encrypting a password

    1. Run the following command:

      <Unravel installation directory>/unravel/manager support password encrypt
    2. When you are prompted for a password, specify the password and press Enter (Return key).

      The text you enter for the password is not displayed. After you press Enter (Return key), it displays the encrypted password. For example:

      ENC(raAglEJlaDddTtnfWo/llCV4vuJBv0s+)

      This result, including the ENC() part, can be added into the unravel.properties instead of the verbatim (unencrypted) raw password.

  • Decrypting a password

    1. Access the Manager tool from the install directory and run the following command:

      <Unravel installation directory>/unravel/manager support password decrypt
    2. When you are prompted for the encrypted password, specify the encrypted password and press Enter (Return key). The decrypted password is displayed.

  • Generating a random encrypted password

    Access the Manager tool from the install directory and run the following command:

    <Install dir>/manager support password generate

    An encrypted password is generated.
