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.
