Problem:

StarTeam: Can the username/password used in the stcmd command, stored or read from an encrypted file?

Resolution:

  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: All
  • Product Component: stcmd
  • Platform/OS Version: NA

Description:

Can the username and password used in the stcmd command, stored or read from an encrypted file?


Answer/Solution:

There is no way to store them in an encrypted file.

The most that can be done is to store the password in a file, but with no encryption, using the following command option.

-pwdfile Specifies the path to a file that stores the user"s password.
This option overrides the password used as part of the -p
option. It prevents others from seeing the user"s password
on the command line. It must be saved in UTF-8 format.


The full syntax is:
-pwdfile "filePath"


The password file should consist only of the password.
Leading and trailing whitespace is ignored.
