Way to encrypt password for Javelin SFTP?

  • 1.  Way to encrypt password for Javelin SFTP?

    Posted 09-19-2018 10:42 AM

    Hi,

     

    I need to use the Javelin STFP upload functionality with Javelin. I've noticed that even though I write the password in the password box, the password still appears in clear in the workflow and inside the ..vwf file. 

    I also tried using a variable, but this is also stored in clear text in the .vwf file and easily identifiable.

     

    Is there a better way to hide the password?

     

    Thank you

     

     

    In the example below, I typed in mypassword into the box where it is hidden, but it appears after in the workflow box in clear text.

    Xavier,

     

    Off the top of my head, I believe that we have this corrected in more current versions of Javelin.

     

    What version are you running?

     

    Regards,

    Sean

    I believe that lines up with TDM 4.4.

     

    This was fixed in the 4.5 timeframe with a patch if I recall correctly. I'll double check if this was included in TDM 4.6 - if so and you are in fact running TDM 4.4, it's a straightforward upgrade to 4.6.

     

    Stay tuned while I can confirm the fix version(s).
