Password encryption

With the help of this option, you can encrypt all user passwords for LDAP and connection between Hive and Apiary.

Note: we recommend you to activate password encryption before you set up LDAP integration and connection between Hive and Apiary.

To activate password encryption:

  1. Open the file /opt/hw-bw/config/user.ini (root privileges required);
  2. Add the option sensdata.encrypt.mode to the [main] section and set the value AES256:

    sensdata.encrypt.mode = AES256
  3. To apply changes, run the command:


If LDAP settings and connections between Hive and Apiary have been already set up on the Platform, after restart it is necessary to update their settings to encrypt existing passwords.
