Issue #201602-01: Unencrypted Repo JDBC Password

Product: OpenIDM
Affected versions: 3.0.0, 3.1.0, 4.0.0
Fixed versions: n/a
Component: OpenIDM JDBC Repository Server
Severity: High

JDBC Repository passwords are no longer auto-encrypted by OpenIDM when the repository is activated. As a result, the password stored within the repository configuration as well as those written to the JSON configuration files (repo.jdbc.json or datasource.jdbc-default.json) and the OpenIDM log will appear in clear-text.

Manually encrypt the JDBC Repository password using the OpenIDM Command-Line Interface as detailed in the following Knowledge Article: Repository password is not encrypted in OpenIDM 3.x or 4.x log and configuration files.
