      Description

      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:

      • constant
      • random password generation (compliant with resource password policy, if present - see SYNCOPE-121)
      • provide custom Java class
