When using SOAP XML call to run TEWS (Task Execution Web Service), admin password is set as clear text.
Web Services Properties in Identity Manager Admin Console is set as the following.
Release : 14.x
Identity Manager cannot decrypt encrypted admin password in this case. However, to add security we can integrate Identity Manager with Siteminder and do the following settings in Web Services Properties.
1. Set "SiteMinder Authentication" to "Basic Authentication"
2. Un-check the "Admin password is required" box
In this configuration, send the SOAP XML without admin password and with Basic Authorization Header
Enabling "WSS Username Token (Password Text)" is not compatible with Identity Portal. Please refer to
