Forcing email delivery via SMTP to use TLS 1.2 in BI Publisher 126.96.36.199.0
SummaryNeed to identify the steps required to use TLS 1.2 for both email delivery and email notifications.
We use MS Office 365 SMTP server to send both email notifications upon report completion and to deliver report results (PDF, XLS, etc). When BI Publisher makes the connection to the SMTP server, TLS 1.0 is being used. We need to update that to TLS 1.2 for both notifications and email delivery as Microsoft will be moving to only TLS 1.2 for SMTP later this year (Jun 2020).
We have applied the following settings to the startup configuration for bi_server1 via the console.
-Djdk.tls.client.protocols=TLSv1.2 -Djdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv2Hello,SSLv3,TLSv1,TLSv1.1 -Dmail.smtp.starttls.enable=TRUE -Dmail.smtp.ssl.protocols=TLSv1.2
