Javelin flow not decrypting password


Article ID: 128700

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


The flow OverrideStagingTableValues has an authentication block which makes reference to VTDM_user and VTDM_password as such:
" & VTDM_user & " " & VTDM_password & "

Our password variable is encrypted (and has been for a long period of time) but a recent upgrade in Javelin versions seems to fail to decrypt this as we are suddenly getting an authentication error on this step. If we hardcode our password into VTDM_password (instead of the encryption), it authenticates appropriately.

I tried with the latest Javelin 2.0.501.0 (the version attached) and still received an authentication error.


Javelin 2.0.501.0


Patch for this issue is Javelin-2.0.508.0.zip.  Please contact BC Support for this version or if you are installing a GA version AFTER March 5, 2019, please ask BC Support if this version made it into your downloaded GA Version.
