Encrypt Database Password in dbconfig.xml

Hello Jira Masters,


The database password for Jira is stored in plain text in dbconfig.xml and this could be a security leak for us.


Could you please tell me if there is any solution to encrypt the data base password or use an integrated authentication?

Thanks you !

I just make the file only readable by the service account that runs jira. On my systems that account doesn't have interactive login rights, so you need sudo to modify the file. And sudo is locked to trusted users only.

As of Jira 8.3, you can now encrypt the database password.
