Using encrypt.sh for Salesforce Data Loader on the Mac or Linux/Unix

without comments

From the same directory as DataLoader.jar

  1. java -cp DataLoader.jar com.salesforce.dataloader.security.EncryptionUtil -g SOMEGARBAGESTRINGFOLLOWS
  2. copy that value to key.txt
  3. java -cp DataLoader.jar com.salesforce.dataloader.security.EncryptionUtil -e “MYPASSWORD” “/full/path/to/key.txt”
  4. copy that value to process-config.xml’s sfdc.password
  5. Add <entry key=”process.encryptionKeyFile” value=”/full/path/to/key.txt”></entry> to process-config.xml

Alternately, add sfdc.password, sfdc.username and process.encryptionKeyFile to config.properties (in the same directory).
