Issue/Introduction

 

When a process is executed that contains a runscript operator that executes a powershell script with parameters, (executed on an Agent) a command file is created by PAM to run the command. This command file contains all the parameters in clear text.  My question is when this data is transmitted to the Agent machine is it also transmitted in clear text?  If one of the parameters is a password is it transmitted to that agent machine in clear text or is it encrypted some how.

 

Environment

Release : 4.3

Component : Process Automation

Resolution

All of the data is encrypted prior to being transferred to the agent server to run. 

No cleartext information is passed at all.
