With Remote Engine v2.12.9 onwards, you can encrypt the password type parameters contained in the context of a Job task.

Once this feature is activated, Remote Engines encrypt these parameters when passing them to Jobs for execution.

Procedure

  1. Stop your engine.
  2. Open the <RemoteEngineInstallationDirectory>/etc/org.talend.ipaas.rt.jobserver.client.cfg file to add the following property to encrypt the password type context parameters, when Talend Remote Engine processes the context for the Job to be run.

    Example

    job.ctx.params.file.sensitive.values.encrypted=true
    Without this property, your engine handles the password type parameter as plain text, the same as it does for the other context parameters.
  3. Save the file.
