I do not have the option in autosys_secure to encrypt the password for my PeopleSoft Adapter.

We are using the Unicenter AutoSys Job Management Adapter for PeopleSoft and we need to use encrypted passwords. Our AutoSys version is 11.3.5. When we go in to autosys_secure to get the passwords we expected to be presented with the following option:

[2] Encrypt password for legacy agents and adapters (using DES).

but that option is not available, why?


CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys), starting with version 11.3.5, offers FIPS 140-2 compliancy. If that option is selected on install then autosys_secure will not present the option to encrypt passwords for the adapters as they use DES encryption which is not 140-2 compliant.
