The new secrets work includes some breaking changes to how and where secrets configuration is stored:

  • secrets.json instead of boot.properties
  • OBF/CRYPT settings no longer work for encrypting passwords in configs.

According to Jason Lemay, there's some discussion of creating a script to help with this migration, but does not appear to have a JIRA yet – check in with him for current status before starting this task. See OPENIDM-10621 and OPENIDM-11396 for more information.

Dev's still in progress, but I have partial commits per OPENIDM-11396 PR here, and I'll plan to add info to the release notes (including this chapter) when the work is complete (see OPENIDM-11593).

JIRA for script recently created – OPENIDM-11608

Comment by Mike Jang [X] (Inactive) [ 31/Oct/18 ]

Per OPENIDM-11608 – it won't be a script, but essentially a deprecation of the 6.0 version of boot.properties, per this PR[this PR|https://stash.forgerock.org/projects/OPENIDM/repos/openidm/pull-requests/4569/overview]
