    Update BlPackage Property of type Encrypted String

      Hi,

      does anybody know if it possible to update a local property of a BLPackage of type 'Encrypted String' out of the NSH?

      The package is forseen to update a local users password on several servers and current approach is:

      - export the user to BLPackage

      -create a new local property in the package

      and idea now is on nsh create a random password, store it in the encrypted property and via deploy job reset the password to not have it cleartext in the package.

       

      Simply setting the property via

           blcli_execute BlPackage setLocalParameterDefaultValue

      seems only to work for simple strings, for encrypted string properties it´s giving an error.

      In advance encrypting the string via

           blenc -e BLencrypt:$PASSWORD

      works, the string is encrypted and as well applied to the property but the newly set password does not work.

       

      Any idea would be greatly appreciated!

       

      Thx and regards

      Thorsten
