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?
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
