Use of configure Scheduler export key script

The script configure_scheduler_export_key allows to configure a password for sensitive data encryption used by default to export/import metadata, instead of Scheduler default one. When exporting/importing metadata, if the export key password is set an the user does not specify a custom password, then the export key password will be used. This script is available in the setup/scheduler directory of the platform. It is provided in two versions: (for Linux systems) and configue_scheduler_export_key.bat (for Windows systems). Make sure the Scheduler server is stopped before setting the key.

Syntax of the “configure_scheduler_export_key” script in automatic mode

configure_scheduler_export_key -k [encrypted:]<key>


-k [encrypted:]<key>: automatic key configuration. This option does not work if there is already a key configured. You can encrypt key/password using the script encrypt_password. Then, copy the output of this command and pass it as an argument of this parameter, with the prefix encrypted. For example, -k encrypted:Gr16MjvuXhRzPtPH/yTXHw==.

./ -k

This command sets the password used to encrypt exported sensitive data (in this example, we pass this new password encrypted).

Syntax of the “configure_scheduler_export_key” script in interactive mode

configure_scheduler_export_key -i


-i: interactive mode. Interactive mode can be used to set,update or remove the key.


If you are going to use the Solution Manager to migrate changes in the server’s metadata from one environment to another (Promotions), use the same export key in all the environments.
