I was trying to do a decryption by adding PGP Decrypt task calling the PGP ring and adding the Passphrase. Upon executing the test I got the below error log:

3/23/16 5:56:21 AM INFO Executing task 'pgpDecrypt 1.0'
3/23/16 5:56:21 AM INFO Finished task 'pgpDecrypt 1.0'
3/23/16 5:56:21 AM ERROR [8098 - PGP Decrypt] invalid header encountered
3/23/16 5:56:21 AM INFO Routing the control to the module 'Error Notification'

Couple of questions:

What does "Invalid Header encountered" means? Also, I'm thinking if I got the correct passphrase - how do we get this from the key?

I'm not seeing you listed as active support for your company. Please notify to get added to your company account so that we can associate questions and cases to you.

Not seeing the full stack trace of the error, I can't give a specific answer, but usually this does involved invalid passphrase and/or information in the Key Header.
