obfuscate password in OOSH

Under RSFlowInvoke.exe/JRSFlowInvoke.jar, you can create an obfuscated password to protect the credentials that are used to authenticate to Central.

 

Is this functionality that is hidden somewhere in oosh that I can't find the reference to?

Re: obfuscate password in OOSH

Hi, 

if we are talking OOSH standalone there isn't any such feature, however for most oosh commands that require passwords omitting the -password parameter will prompt you for the password and have it be hidden (similar to windows/linux command shell password prompts). In the case of OOSH in central /RAS in the same directory as OOSH there is a batch file encrypt-password (with versions for both windows and linux)  that with the -e modifier encrypts strings and with the -o modifier obfuscates them. 

Hope this helps,

Vlad

Re: obfuscate password in OOSH

Hi Vlad,


Thanks for the reply!  I found this thread : https://community.saas.hpe.com/t5/Operations-Orchestration/OOSH-using-encrypted-password/m-p/797462#M282  that seemed to indicate that it won't work.

 

I tried both obfuscated and encrypted passwords via encrypt-passwords.bat, and both still return 401 errors. 

 

My use case is that I have a external flow run that I want to enable using OOSH, but I don't want the calling user to have the actual password for the account that is used to run the flow.

 

Thanks!
