DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)

Issue/Introduction

The "Issue CLI Commands with the MCS Utilities Tool" documentation page lists how to Find and Fix MCS profiles discrepancies via the command-line. To use this command, the user must pass the password as an argument. The documentation suggests using a CRON job to automate this task.

Problem:

The password is stored in clear text if I schedule this task.


Request:

Is there a supported method to encrypt the password, so that I can pass the encrypted password instead?

Environment

Release : 9.2.0 or above

Component : UIM - MON_CONFIG_SERVICE
