Secure Source Services and Target Services

You can use secure fields when you create some source services and target services.
You can use secure fields in the following types of entities:
Built-in Source Services and Target Services
You can use secure parameters to configure fields when you create built-in source services and target services. You can set the values for parameters in the Parameters tab of the Administrator tool. To use the parameters, specify the parameter name in the entity properties when you add the entities to a data flow.
Custom Source Services and Target Services
You can use secure fields when you create custom entities in EDS.
When you create a custom entity type, you describe the fields of the custom entity in the EDS plug-in XML file. When you describe the fields, you can specify that the fields are secure. The secure fields are securely communicated and stored in an encrypted form.
The following example shows how you can specify a secure field:
<tns:textControl>          
					<tns:name>pwd</tns:name>
				 	<tns:displayName>Password</tns:displayName>
				 	<tns:description>Enter value for password</tns:description>
				  	<tns:mandatory>true</tns:mandatory>
          			<tns:stringTextField>
          				<tns:maxLength>10</tns:maxLength>
          				<tns:secure>true</tns:secure>
          			</tns:stringTextField>
        		</tns:textControl>
If you install EDS in secure mode, the secure fields are securely communicated using encryption over HTTPS from the web browser to the Administrator tool and in an encrypted form over UM from the Administrator tool to the Administrator Daemon stored in the database. If you install EDS in normal mode, the value in the field appears masked in the Administrator tool but is not encrypted.
For more information about creating custom entity types, see the Edge Data Streaming Developer Guide.
