Issue/Introduction

We upgraded Javelin to version 4.9.100.61. Now connections to the database that make use of an encrypted password (encrypted with the Javelin encryption extension), don't work anymore.
The same connection works correctly with a plain text password but that is something we rather not do.

Has something been changed in the way Javelin uses encrypted strings in version 4.9?
 
 
 

Cause

In your current Javelin version,  Program Files\Grid-Tools\Javelin\Javelin.exe.Config and Program Files\Grid-Tools\Javelin\JavelinExecutor.exe.Config which contains an entry...

<add key="EnableGlobalDecrypt" value="False" />

...that is set to false by default which you can change to True.

Environment

TDM Javelin 4.9.X

Resolution

In your current Javelin version,  Program Files\Grid-Tools\Javelin\Javelin.exe.Config and Program Files\Grid-Tools\Javelin\JavelinExecutor.exe.Config which contains an entry...

<add key="EnableGlobalDecrypt" value="False" />

...that is set to false by default which you can change to True.

On the other hand, you can upgrade to the latest version where the configuration entry is set to True by default.
