Secure Jira credentials

After users authenticate to Jira from Dimensions CM clients, their Jira credentials are encrypted and cached in the Dimensions CM database.

For additional security, you can customize the password for encrypting the Jira credentials in the database. You need administrator privileges for this task.

Note: Changing the custom password after users have registered their Jira credentials in Dimensions CM invalidates the stored credentials. Users need to log in again to Jira in a Dimensions CM client.

To secure Jira credentials:

On the Dimensions CM server, run the dmpasswd utility:

Copy code
dmpasswd DM_JIRA_SECRET -add -pwd <Your custom password>

This command registers the value for DM_JIRA_SECRET in the encrypted file dfs/registry.dat using the custom password you specified.
