How to encrypt passwords in hue.ini conf file

Hi,

I have a standalone (e.g. not configured with CM) HUE instance running, connected to my HDP cluster.

The passwords in hue.ini conf file are all in plaintext (database and LDAP passwords)

Does HUE provides a way to have those passwords encrypted?

I know you can store all the passwords in a separate file as described inhttp://gethue.com/storing-passwords-in-script-rather-than-hue-ini-files/ , but they will still be in plaintext.

 

Thanks

Paula

Re: How to encrypt passwords in hue.ini conf file

Hi,

Not sure what you mean

I have already running a HUE instance with LDAP backend authentication enabled, but i don't want to have the entry in hue.ini

# Password of the bind user -- not necessary if the LDAP server supports
    # anonymous searches
 bind_password=PASSWORDINPLAINTEXT

I wanted to have it encrypted.

I know there's a way to have the passwords in an external file like the link i post it the int original question, but still they will be in plaintext.
