• To import definitions into the encryption settings database, use the encryption-settings command with the import subcommand.
    The import subcommand supports the following arguments.
    Argument Description


    Specifies the path to the file containing the exported encryption settings definitions.


    Specifies the path to a file containing the passphrase used to protect the contents of the encryption settings definitions.

    If this is not provided, the tool interactively prompts for the passphrase.


    An optional argument that indicates that if the export file contains a definition that is marked as preferred, then it becomes the new preferred definition for the instance.


    When importing definitions into a non-empty encryption settings database, the existing definitions are preserved and the new definitions are added alongside them. If any of the definitions from the import file already exist in the database, they are skipped when processing the import.

    The following is an example of the command with one of the arguments included.

    $ bin/encryption-settings import \
         --input-file exported-definitions.esd
    Enter the PIN used to encrypt the definition:
