  • Secure Service Instance Credentials for Pivotal Application Service (PAS) formally known as CredHub

Symptom

While configuring CredHub in Ops Manager for PCF 2.0, CredHub deployment fails with the following errors:

Error: Unable to render instance groups for deployment. Errors are:

- Unable to render templates for job 'credhub'. Errors are:

(line 160: The encryption_password value must be at least 20 characters in length.
Please update and redeploy.)

Cause

The value for "Active Encryption Password Value" field is set as to less than 20 characters. Users need to type a key to use for encrypting and decrypting the values stored in the CredHub database. This key must be at least 20 characters.
