    Remote Password gets corrupt for trading partner created using
    IBM Sterling B2B Integrator APIs over custom protocol.

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    
    The issue is due to key being used while obscuring password (at
    the time of password creation) and un-obscuring password (while
    attempting to connect to remote server through Begin Session
    Service) are different.So there is a modification where
    Extension name which has password that has to be encrypted in
    JSON should be passed as "ExtensionName+ _ENCRYPTED" as below,
    
    ExtensionName_ENCRYPTED:password
    
    ex:IBM_Rpwd_ENCRYPTED:password123
