Error processing input
com.pega.pegarules.pub.context.CryptographicException: encryptPropertyValue: No site-specific cipher algorithm
at com.pega.pegarules.exec.internal.util.crypto.PRCryptoImpl.encryptPropertyValue(PRCryptoImpl.java:580)



Steps to Reproduce



Unknown


Root Cause



The command to compile and load the JAR file to the database was executed incorrectly. Hence, the class file was not loaded to the database. A site-specific cipher class was required for encryption and since the class was not found, error occurred.


Resolution



Perform the following local-change: Use the below command as a reference to compile and load the JAR file to the database,

compileAndLoad.bat --driver <drive>:\prweb\WEB-INF\lib\ojdbc6.jar --prweb <drive>:\prweb --propfile <drive>:\prweb\WEB-INF\classes\prbootstrap.properties -–basedir <drive>:\prweb –-jarfile Cipher –-codeset customer –-codesetversion 07-01-10 –prprivate “com\site\cipher\encrypt\CustomCipher.java"

select * from PR_Engineclasses where PZJAR = 'Cipher.jar'
