Issue/Introduction

The credentials of this account is currently in clear text. This is stored in the PPOracleDB.properties file,
 

Is there any way to encrypt this, as this does not comply with some customer's security policy ?

Environment

CA APM 10.x

Resolution

This limitation is related to User Story: DE379904
However, the Powerpack for Oracle database has been enhanced to encrypt the password in PPOracleDB.properties

This fix is available in 10.5.2 hotfix #47  (contact CA support to obtain a copy of this hotfix)
and will be in coming 10.7 SP3
