Encrypting passwords for synapse configurations


Before you begin, be sure that your registry DB has write-access enabled. Open the registry.xml file (stored in the <EI_HOME>/conf/ directory) and ensure that the <readOnly> element is set to false as shown below.

Code Block

This is necessary because the passwords you encrypt using the management console of the ESB profile are written to the registry DB. If the registry does not have write-access enabled, the required functions on the management console will be disabled.

The ESB profile of WSO2 EI provides a UI that can be used for encrypting passwords and other sensitive information in synapse configurations. Follow the steps below.
