PPM Support Tip: Users are able to see the database password in log files


Knowledge Base Article: KM01004896


The command execution prints the database password in the log files when the ksc_local_exec uses this token [AS.DB_PASSWORD]


Non encrypted database password in server.conf file prints the real password in execution logs.


R&D recommends to use encrypted password in server.conf file.


The install/administration guide states the below for DB_PASSWORD parameter:


Example  #!#<Password>#!#


You can run the kconfig.sh in order to encrypt it.
