Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-1678) SQL Parameter values may contain sensitive information and should not be logged by default.
Date Fri, 04 Jun 2010 14:38:54 GMT


Michael Dick commented on OPENJPA-1678:

Hi Pinaki,

I think this is orthogonal to the level of tracing used. While it's often useful in conjunction
with other tracing the two should not be tied together. You should be able to see parameters
in your exception text (if you so desire) without enabling logging for example. 

I'm not entirely sold on introducing a new log level in service either. For the time being
I'm going to treat this as a bug with openjpa.ConnectionFactoryProperties.TrackParameters
and fix it that way (the cfProps patch).

> The values for parameters used in our SQL statements may contain sensitive information
(e.g. social security numbers). By default these values are printed in the exception message
and in SQL trace. Having the values printed can be a great help when debugging an application
- but presents a risk when used in production. 
> To resolve the issue I propose to disable printing the parameter values by default. The
parameter values will still be tracked internally - but will not be displayed in exception
messages or trace unless the following property is set :
> <property name="openjpa.ConnectionFactoryProperties" value="printParameters=true"/>
