Affects Version/s: None
Fix Version/s: 1.1.0
Currently, cleartext password is always required when subscribing to a new external resource.
However, in some cases (for example when passwords are stored with some symmetric algorithm) this can be avoided.
For example, it could be:
Case 1: 2-way (a.k.a. symmetric) password cipher algorithm is configured in Syncope
Use decrypted password from SyncopeUser to subscribe new resource.
Case 2: 1-way (a.k.a. hash or asymmetric) password cipher algorithm is configured in Syncope and no clear-text password is available (for example, passed via UserMod or provided by a synchronizing resource)
Provide, on a resource-basis, a mean to configure how new password should be generated:
- random password generation (compliant with resource password policy, if present - see
- provide custom Java class
