Authentication Profile Encryption
In our project, we have a Case Management Service in Pega Cloud ( SOAP Service : version 7.2.2 ). The service is consumed by a in-house instance of Pega in 6.2 ( SOAP Connector ). The Service in Pega cloud expects the consumer in Pega 6 to send the HTTP Authorisation header ( as Authentication profile ). So, we need to send the Pega cloud Operator ID & password thru Authentication profile from in-house Pega 6 application ( thru SOAP connector ). Here are my questions.
1. When I key in the User Name & password in the Authentication profile in Pega 6.2SP1, will it encode or encrypt or hash it by default while storing ?
2. When the connect SOAP in Pega 6 picks up the Authentication profile to inject into SOAP request as HTTP Auth Header, will it still be encoded / encrypted / hashed ?
If so, what is the OOTB default mechanism for encode/encrypt/hashing ?
