Select Yes to write to the TTL DB, where data is automatically deleted after the retention period, set in the field Retention period of tokenized data. Select No to write data to the levelDB, where data is not deleted.

NOTE: In Windows servers, TTL DB would work only with Microsoft Visual C++ 2015. Before changing the option, Write Tokenized Data to TTL DB  make sure that Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 is installed on windows server where Cloud Connector is installed.

Symbolic Server Name Enter the Symbolic Server Name used by Cloud Connector to detokenize files. 
Symbolic Server IP Address Enter the Symbolic Server IP address used by Cloud Connector to detokenize files.

Map DB Cache Type Enter the type of in-memory database used to store configuration properties. 
File Name to Store Token Mapping Enter the file name where cleartext to token mapping is stored. 

Change Salt Values

Changing salt value makes the existing MapDBEncrypted.txt file useless as existing MapDBEncrypted.txt contents are encrypted with the old salt value. If you attempt to import data from the old MapDBEncrypted.txt file after changing the salt value, it would lead to data corruption in DB. For this reason, perform the following steps after changing the salt value:

  1. Back up the existing MapDBEncrypted.txt files.
  2. Export the data from LevelDB/ Rocks-TTLDB.
  3. Use the new exported MapDBEncrypted.txt files for importing data in future.

Switch from TTLDB to LevelDB

To switch back to LevelDB from TTL DB (for any reason), perform the following steps:

  1. Export all data from TTL DB.
  2. Import all exported data from TTL DB to Level DB.
  3. Switch the Write Tokenized Data to TTL DB option on the dashboard.
