I believe this will be resolved post-beta with the use of the vault.
Comment 2 Eric Wittmann 2013-10-29 09:21:37 EDT
All of the overlord apps now support using vaulted passwords in their config files rather than plain text.  In this particular case the installer needs to be updated to do the following:

1) create/init the EAP vault
2) auto-generate a password for a dtgov service user named "dtgovworkflow"
3) create the dtgovworkflow user via 'add-user.sh' or equiv.
4) store the generated password in the EAP vault
5) write the dtgovworkflow username and generated password's vault key to dtgov.properties (instead of using the plain text password entered by the user)

Further details of this have been documented elsewhere for reference by interested parties.

Assigning this BZ to thauser to complete the prod installer changes.
Comment 4 Thomas Hauser 2013-11-14 10:25:40 EST
Changes for this should be complete for ER7. Need the full build for confirmation.
Comment 5 Len DiMaggio 2013-12-13 15:31:14 EST
Verified in ER7-2
