Encryption key

If enabled, all questions and answers residing in the user store as strings are encrypted using this key. Default: No encryption key is enabled.

Questions in Resource Bundle or Text File

You can configure a resource bundle or text file with a standard list of questions to configure screens with controls that provide an option list for users to choose a question.

You have two choices when loading questions:

Checking Load questions as file

Under Settings, if you select Load questions as file, then in the Resource bundle for questions field, enter the full path to the questions file including the extension.

For example:

c:\jboss-3.2.2\server\default\deploy\iam_imI.ear\custom\questions.txt

Questions File

The questions file can have any name with any extension such as:

fpquestions.txt

In this file, you should enter the questions one per line in the file like the following:

What is your favorite color?

What is your home town name?

What is your driver license number?

Unchecking Load questions as file

Under Settings, if you do not select Load questions as file, then in the Resource bundle for questions field, enter the path to the resource bundle file relative to the custom directory and use the dot notation for specifying subdirectories.

For example, if the resource bundle is:

<iam_im.ear>\custom\questions.properties

Enter:

questions

Note: When entering the path, leave off the .properties extension.

If the resource bundle is:

<iam_im.ear>\custom\resourceBundles\questions.properties

Enter:

resourceBundles.questions

Resource Bundle .properties File

The resource bundle can have any name but requires a .properties extension such as:

bundle.properties

You should place the bundle in the <iam_im.ear>\custom directory or any subdirectory under custom.

In this file, to provide a localizable standard list of questions, store the questions in the following format:

question#=question

For example:

1=What is your favorite color?

2=What is your home town name?

3=What is your driver license number?
