Data Feed Monitor Password Rotation
We use the datafeed monitor to manage datafeeds. We also have a requirement to rotate datafeed account passwords on an annual basis.
We can't change the account passwords without also changing the configuration file. That means we will likely have to delay the scheduled task while we update the passwords manually, then the config files. This will probably take some time and need to be done off hours.
Has anyone come across a good way to handle this process?
Me personally having password rotation every year, and for that we always inform and introduce maintenance window for changing of password, configurations and validation.
I would copy the existing configuration file and give the copy a name with the new year in it. Modify the copy at your leisure, then create a new scheduled task that uses the newly updated named configuration file. Flip the old task off and the new one on. No down time needed.
