To convert an obfuscated text back to plain text, open the Settings > Diagnostics > Passwords page.

The input text must begin with OBF: prefix.

Enter the obfuscated text and click Deobfuscate to view the plain text.


Obfuscation is not based on encryption and cannot be considered a secure way to store passwords. The above procedures can be performed on any ATSD instance or using a Jetty server as described by the Oracle Documentation.
