Encrypt connection properties

Before you begin

Follow the general instructions for creating a Generic or GridLink data source, see Create JDBC generic data sources.

Note: Make sure you do not configure the same property=value pair as a clear text and an encrypted property in your Connection Pool configuration.

To encrypt connection properties to be passed to the JDBC driver and used to create physical database connections:

  1. In the Domain Structure tree, expand Services, then select Data Sources.
  2. On the Summary of Data Sources page, click the data source name you wish to update .
  3. Select the Configuration: Connection Pool tab.
  4. To enter a property=value pair without the clear text value visible on the screen, click the Add Securely button next to the Encrypted Properties field. This opens the Add a New Encrypted Property page. Otherwise, go to Step 8.
  5. On the Encrypted Property page, enter a name for the encypted property in the Name field. Then provide and confirm a value for the encryption key in the Value field.
  6. Click OK.
  7. If necessary, repeat steps 4 through 7 to encrypt any additional connection property=value pairs.
  8. Optionally, you can enter several values at once in the Encrypted Properties field but the encrypted values remain visible on the screen until you save the changes. List each property=value pair on a separate line. Values entered are encrypted when you click Save.
  9. Optionally, make any additional changes you wish to make on this page.
  10. Click Save.
  11. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
