How to configure encrypt password for data speed accelerator
Could you please guide on the methodology need to be used for encrypt/decrypt password with using flexmonster data speed accelerator. Normally we used to configure database credentials in property file accessed by Flexmonster but we want to use encrypt and decrypt functionality during runtime to access the flexmonster reports.
Thank you for writing to our support forum. Please provide us with some more information about your request, especially the part about “we want to use encrypt and decrypt functionality during runtime to access the flexmonster reports”. Is it about encryption of data that is sent from the client to Accelerator?
- We want to encrypt the password text being specified over connection string in flexmonster.config property file.
Currently its being supplied as plain text.
- Information at DB level stored as encrypted [ Ex SSN no stored in encrupt] and during execution of report we want to decrypt and display in flexmonster grid.

Thank you for the details.
The connection string from the flexmonster.config is used only by the flexmonster data speed accelerator, which is the server-side tool and it is hosted on your server. This connection string is not being transferred to the flexmonster grid in a browser. Thus, could you please check if you need to encrypt/decrypt a password in the case when it is used only on your servers?
