Error Messages

417 [tp-bio-8080-exec-147] [TABTHREAD1] [] (ngineinterface.service.HttpAPI) ERROR :
Error processing input encryptPropertyValue: No site-specific cipher algorithm
at com.pega.pegarules.exec.internal.util.crypto.PRCryptoImpl.encryptPropertyValue(

Steps to Reproduce


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.


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\ -–basedir <drive>:\prweb –-jarfile Cipher –-codeset customer –-codesetversion 07-01-10 –prprivate “com\site\cipher\encrypt\"

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