Storing sensitive configuration values using the Config Editor

Use the Secure External Storage Manager - it can be opened in two ways:

  • Click on the  symbol in the toolbar
  • Click on the  symbol when editing a sensitive property, then choose the option "Secure external storage" from the drop-down

The dialog supports adding, removing, changing and deleting of external secrets.

External storage IDs that are available in the manager can then be referenced in the 'Change Password' dialog to use them for a specific property.

  • Be aware that changing or deleting a secret may influence other IAM instances/installations that share the same external storage.
  • The secrets that are edited with the manager are stored immediately.
  • Previous versions of the secret values cannot be restored.
