    Configuration Tables and Password Basetypes

    Hey IoT friends,

     

    I'm currently developing an extension using the Java SDK. I have defined a Thing Template that contains a configuration table that's used as credentials to connect to a server.

     

    My Question:

    In my configuration table I have used a field that is of base type "PASSWORD". My question is whether or not this is encrypted on the platform by default when base type of password is used, or will I need to leverage Encryption Services on the platform to keep my password encrypted. Just looking for more of an explanation on it. I've looked through the documentation and wasn't able to find exactly what I was looking for.

     

    If someone knows how this works or if there's documentation available please assist.

     

    Thanks,

    Matt
