3072864 - SF Boomi: Error decrypting password.; Caused by: Decryption error


You have observed one (or multiple) processes failing with a variation of the below error:

  • Error decrypting password.; Caused by: Decryption error
  • java.lang.IllegalStateException: Error decrypting password.
  • Caused by: javax.crypto.BadPaddingException: Decryption error


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • SF Boomi Atom


While extensions are specific to a particular environment, all encrypted fields such as passwords are saved on the atom itself.


This means that if you are un-attaching and attaching atoms from different environments, passwords would have to be re-entered every time.

You will have to do so in case you attach a new atom to any existing environment also.
