2580753 - Can't change Skillsoft connector shared secret

Symptom

Trying to change setting skillsoft.item.connector.shared_secret, when hitting "Apply Changes", the value changes from the one that was set up.

Environment

SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to System Admin->Configuration->System Configuration;
  2. Find the CONNECTORS configuration file and edit it;
  3. Search for the property skillsoft.item.connector.shared_secret and change its value;
  4. Upon hitting Apply Changes the value changes from the one you set.

Cause

The shared secret clear text until you save the CONNECTOR file. On save, the system encrypts the value.

Resolution

This is the expected behavior as currently when saving the connectors configuration file, it encrypts values like passwords and the shared secret to get them securely stored.
