How are the database credentials stored within Test Data Manager (TDM)? What encryption method is used to store the data securely?
Database credentials are stored within the gtrep (AKA the repo). The password is encrypted with the AES-256 cipher. All other data (username, servername, connection/driver parameters, database name, etc) are stored in plain text.
