Post subject: Reconciliation of bo report database password

Dear fellow forum members
I have a requirement to reconcile the BO report database password with the original value(abc123) to make sure that it is correct. I am able to get the encrypted value of the password using getEncryptedCustomPassword(#xyz789) from ireportlogon object. I have used sdk to get this. Based on my search, i dont think there is a decrypt utility available. So i need some mechanism by which i can reconcile ‘abc123’ with ‘#xyz789’ to confirm if the encrypted value is the correct one. Can someone suggest a solution for this.

Not sure it'll work, but try getting the encrypted password on a report that you know has the correct password, and then check that value against the encrypted password of the other reports.

Hi jeopeters
I am not sure if this will work as you need to supply the unencrypted password while putting it into report. We need to check the password from all reports.
