Password Manager module
The Password Manager module stores passwords encrypted and allows to retrieve their plain text value programmatically. This is useful for connector modules which must authenticate to third-party systems with a plain text password.
Once the password is stored, a user of the Magnolia admin interface cannot see the password in plain text. The plain-text value can be retrieved only through program code.
The module installs the Passwords
app which centralizes the management of passwords in the administration
of Magnolia. The passwords are stored in a dedicated workspace called
Maven is the easiest way to install the module. Add the following to your bundle:
<dependency> <groupId>info.magnolia.passwordmanager</groupId> <artifactId>magnolia-module-password-manager</artifactId> <version>1.2.5</version> </dependency>
The module provides a specific
node type for the
Content can be exported and imported for bootstrapping like any other workspace. However, the same encryption key must be used to decrypt the imported passwords as well as encrypt the export. This process uses the same key used for activation, so the key must be preserved, and not regenerated on startup, where passwords require bootstrapping.
