Integrations run periodically and sync data between the integrated products and the IBM Bluemix services. Integrations use encrypted SSL connections and store data in encrypted databases. IBM Bluemix DevOps Connect encrypts the data before it provides it to the IBM Bluemix services.
The first time that you run IBM Bluemix DevOps Connect, register it by using your IBMid. You cannot use IBM Bluemix DevOps Connect until you register it. IBM Bluemix DevOps Connect generates a unique ID and receives a token that together forms its credentials. The credentials are used to establish secure connections and store configuration information and data in the cloud. The credentials are stored in the sync.properties file. For information about the sync.properties file, see Installing IBM Bluemix DevOps Connect.
IBM Bluemix DevOps Connect uses SSL to communicate with the cloud services. The IBM Bluemix DevOps Connect web-based dashboard also uses SSL.
