How do I re-encrypt my metadata database password

Updated documentation can now be found via our YF community HERE

I had to change my Yellowfin Metadata database password. This requires me to change the password in the web.xml file for the jdbc connection. I changed the “encrypt” value to “false” and set the new clear text password. Now I want to encrypt it again. I changed the “encrypt” value back to false and restared but the password is still in clear text. Is there a way to encrypt this password again?


You can get the jar file here which you can use to encrypt a password.

From the command line, run:

java -jar EncryptPassword.jar

Enter your password, and it will print out the encrypted version.
