Is the email account password encrypted in the database? Is it possible to encrypt it?

Version 1

    Details

    Although there is no direct access to the HEAT database, we would like to ensure that the outgoing email account's password is encrypted in the database. Is it possible to encrypt this password?


    Resolution

     


    It is possible to store the email password as an encrypted hash, but it needs to be enabled; it is not encrypted by default. 

    To make the change, do the following:
    Log into the Admin UI
    Select Configure Application
    Select Business Objects
    Search for TenantEmailConfiguration
    Edit the field MTPassword
    Check the 'Store Hashed Password' checkbox
    Save the object

    You will now need to re-enter the password to update it to a hash;
    Select Email Configuration - Servers
    Re-enter the password
    Save
