Decrypting the AppSettings in the web.config

Recent service packs have encrypted the AppSettings section of the web.config in IMIS2017 for security.

 

If you need to make changes in this area please backup the web.config and follow the sequence below.

You may have to update the path below to match the location of your web.config

 

TO DECRYPT

If you want to decrypt the sections then it should look something like this running as administrator in the PowerShell/Command shell.

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -pdf appSettings "C:\Program Files (x86)\ASI\iMIS0\net"

 

After making your changes re-encrypt the AppSettings.
