KNIME Server Administration - encrypted e-mail password

Hi all,

Via the KNIME Server Administration Guide KNIME Server Administration Guide we’ve setup the email notification and successfully tested the the e-mail notification for successfully executed workflows and failed workflows.

However, we are not very happy with the mail password being saved as plain text in the knime-server.config file. Is there any way to encrypt the password or store it somewhere else?

Thanks!

Hello,

Not at this time. However, you can chmod 700 the file to set it to where only the owner (usually the ‘knime’ service principal user) can read it.

I have created a tracking JIRA for this issue, designated SRV-3743, to raise this issue for engineering review.

Regards,
Nickolaus
