To enable encryption for the data files (servers.json, users.json, symlink.json), please note the following points in advance:

  • The encryption should be done before the users and servers are created
  • Once the encryption of the files has been activated, it cannot be undone

To activate the encryption, please follow the steps below:

  1. Stop the SparkView service
  2. Set the parameter “dataEncrypted=true” in gateway.conf (without quotes)
  3. Start the SparkView service
  4. The data files are now encrypted

If you want to encrypt existing files, please make a backup of the plaintext files beforehand. Otherwise it will not be possible to restore them.
