CA Easytrieve Report Generator

Issue/Introduction

In order to compile Easytrieve to use Oracle a PARM USERID ('user' 'password') SSID ('ssidname') is needed.  After compiling this module, the information shows up in clear text near the end of the Easytrieve executable bin file.  Is there a way to cause this information to be encrypted?

Environment

Release : 11.6

Component : CA EASYTRIEVE REPORT GEN

Resolution

The plaintext credentials are part of the Easytrieve program, there's no support for encryption at this time.
