Generate JWT Shared Secret for the Portal
If you install the CA TDM 4.2 Portal for the first time, it generates a 512-bit random shared secret key for JWT token generation. If you upgrade an existing installation of any version of the CA TDM portal to 4.2, it keeps your existing shared secret and does not generate a new one. If you require consistent operation of security users across multiple TDM Portals, ensure that they all use the same ‘jwt.sharedSecret’ value in the Portal’s configuration file.
  1. Open the
    CA Test Data Manager Portal\service\bin
  2. Execute the EncryptionUtil tool with the ‘-s’ option to generate a new shared secret.
