However, when securing passwords of more product-specific configuration files such as data service configurations, the steps may vary. Therefore, WSO2 DSS provides the feature to securely store sensitive data in data service configuration files, using the secure vault functionality. Users can encrypt their passwords using tokens instead of the actual password inside the data service configuration file. See the instructions given below.


You need to manually secure the password if you are creating the datasource inline when creating the data service. However, If you create the datasource via the ConfigureDatasourcesAdd Datasource option in the Management Console, it stores the datasource in the Registry, and thereby, the password you enter will be encrypted automatically.
