Introduction:
By default, global administrator passwords for Transaction Manager admin console are stored with SHA1 algorithm. Please follow these steps to change the algorithm to SHA2 or SHA256.
Environment:
Transaction Manager 7.8
Instructions:
- Log in to Transaction Manager admin console as master admin
- Click on "Configure Global Admin Policy"
- Select SHA2 for "Password Storage Algorithm"
- Click submit

This requires restart of ACS and Admin Console (on tomcat).

Once the services are up and running, try changing the password for a global administrator. Now the password is stored in the database with SHA2 algorithm.
