Updated On:


CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


Error Message :

Automic encrypting tool (UCYBCRYP) does not generate different encoded passwords for passwords that are 15-characters long each time you run it through the encrypting tool. 

It generates a new encoded password for 9, 14, 16, and 17 characters long, but not 15.  

This is due to the algorithm used in the encrypting tool.


Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: Due to the algorithm used for encryption.
