    Hello All,

     

    While using migratOut command, I am using sourceGateway.properties file in which I have to mention the below:

     

    hostname

    username

    password

    port

    results

    encryptionPassphrase

     

    but I am not sure what does password means (is it the migration user password or pkcs p.12 password?)

    and what i need to give in encryptionPassphrase .

     

    Please help in these 2 details,

     

    Thanks

    Praty

    the parameter 'password', requires the password for 'username', used to connect to the restman interface. OOTB, the the Identity store that is used for authentication/authorization is the 'Internal Identity Provider. So, said password, must reside in there, and based on the access that user has, will be able to do the same, with GMU/Restman.

     

    Also keep in mind that 'password' should be 'encoded' via the GMU command 'encodePassword'.

    encodePassword command - CA API Gateway - 9.2 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    You can bypass the encode requirement via using the plaintextPassword argument instead, but isn't as secure for obvious reasons.

     

    'encryptionPasshrase' is the argument used to help 'encrypt' items such as passwords/privateKeys in the bundle upon export. Keep in mind that this exact encryptionPassphrase must be passed in as an argument upon 'migrateIn', so that it can do the necessary decryption before applying the bundle.

     

    This helps ensure that while your bundle is at rest, your passwords and Private keys aren't usable.

     

    hope this helps,
