CloudBees CD (CloudBees Flow) uses "passkey" encryption to encrypt all secret data in the database, such as passwords. When you move a database from one CloudBees CD (CloudBees Flow) server to another, either by import, database restore, file copy, or by changing the CloudBees CD (CloudBees Flow) database configuration, you must copy the old passkey file to the new server to enable the encrypted passwords.

For details and instructions, see the "Restoring Your CloudBees CD (CloudBees Flow) Server" section in the "Maintenance" chapter of the CloudBees CD (CloudBees Flow) Installation and Configuration Guide at https://docs.electric-cloud.com/eflow_doc/FlowIndex.html.
