Using Data Migration Workbench in Phire to produce a data set, got the above error. Is it referring to the Phire super-user or the individual using DMW?

How to remove a password from the User Profile ?

A user by mistake was assigned a password in the User Profile screen.  But actually that user should have been using a password, the same that he use to log in to the network (Active Directory).

In other words, the user is login into our network with one password, then is login into Phire with another password. And we as admin don’t allow that.

So how can I remove the password from the User Profile ? so the user use the same Active Directory password ?

Passwords provide the first line of defense against unauthorized access to your computer and personal information. The stronger your password, the more protected your computer will be from hackers and malicious software. You should maintain strong passwords for all accounts on your computer.
Here are some useful tips to for creating strong passwords and keeping your information secure.

Use a unique password for each of your important accounts (i.e. email and online banking). Do not use the same password across multiple accounts.
Your password should be at least 8 characters long. Password should consist of lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers and symbols. A long password will offer more protection than a short password if it is properly constructed.
Do not use personal information such as your name, age, date of birth, child’s name, pet’s name, or favorite color/song when constructing your password.
Avoid consecutive keyboard combinations (i.e. qwerty or asdfg).
Look around and make sure no one is watching while you enter your password. If somebody is, politely ask them to look away.
Always log off/sign out if you leave your device for the day – it just takes a few seconds to do and it’ll help ensure that no one uses your system for malicious purposes, you can also learn how to record passwords typed on computer click here !
Avoid entering passwords on computers you don’t control – they may have malicious software installed to purposely steal your password.
Avoid entering passwords when connected to unsecured Wi-Fi connections (like at an airport or coffee shop) – hackers can intercept your passwords and data over unsecured connections.
Never tell your password to anyone.
Change your passwords regularly and avoid using same password over and over again.
Never write down your passwords on a sticky paper and hide underneath your workstation or telephone. Somebody will find it.
Always select “never” when your Internet browser asks for your permission to remember your passwords.
We all have a responsibility to keep our information secure. These guidelines will help you avoid most of the pitfalls you may encounter along the way.

Access to Change Requests on different domain ID

Currently, we have two teams each with a domain ID they own. Team A has domain ID DM1 and Team B has DM2. Team A can only search for the change requests under their domain ID. Is there a way for Team A to search for the change requests under Team B’s domain ID?

New passwords, entered into Phire, not matching with actual DB and PS passwords

We have a requirement to update our PeopleSoft system passwords, including the Peoplesoft connect ID.  after updating the connect ID password and validating Peoplesoft was working properly I went back to update the Phire configuration to use the same password.  After saving and the going back to test I found that the encrypted password from Phire does not match what Peoplesoft says it should.

I ran another test by reentering the exact same PeopleSoft password, no actual change just reentered, and see that the encrypted password does not match what it was previously.

How can I get Phire to encrypt the passwords the same way PeopleSoft is encrypting them so that Phire works.

this is critical since I can no longer migrate projects through Phire since the passwords are not being accepted.

How to setup so nobody can create a new CR using a particular CR Type?

First, leave the CR Type “active”, so that it continues to be visible in the searches.  Then go to the Row Level Security component (Phire Architect > Security Administration > Row Level Security) and remove the permission to “Create New CR” for that CR Type.  You’ll need to do that for each role that might have access to create a new CR.  In the end, the users will be able to search for and open the existing CRs with that type, but nobody will be able to create a new one.


How to enable developers to download files from different environments?

Developers can access files (SQRs, COBOLs, etc.) that are residing on the servers for the various environments from the Objects page within the Change Request. First, the developer needs to add the file name to the CR Object list. Then to download or upload the file from/to an environment, the developer needs to click the download or upload button next to the file name in the CR Objects. The prompt page will offer a list of databases available to the developer.

The list is controlled by setup in the Domain Setup Wizard on Step 14. Workflow Databases (found at Phire Architect > Architect Administration > Domain Setup Wizard).  There you will find the “File Upload” and “Object View/Download” options listed for each database within each CR Type.  The file upload option is further limited by “Restore Object” security and the lock status of the particular file within Phire.


How to disable the auto-assign checkbox on the Issue without customizing?

You can disable the auto-assign checkbox on the issue component without customizing. This is done through Phire security. Navigate to:  Phire Architect > Security Administration > Domain Security

Select the Role from which you want to take away the auto-assign checkbox.
Click the Permission List link next to your Domain.
Uncheck the “Override Auto Assignment” permission.

Note: If the user belongs to multiple roles, you need to make you take away the above permission from all the roles. If at least one role assigned to a user has this permission, then the auto-assign checkbox will still be enabled.
