Support different passphrase works while upgrade

In B2Bi, as of now, when we export the resources from one instance (for ex: 525) to another latest instance (ex: 603) it is expected that the passphrase should me same in both the instances. If they are not the import fails with an Error during description stage. This forces the customer to use the same passphrase across the instances. Please ensure that different passphrase is supported in later instance by using a different way during decription so that it doesn't fail due to passphrase mismatch. Now, the way it is designed forces the customer to use the same passphrase in all the instances whereverer import/export is used across different instances.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. While we agree that this idea would add value, it is not something we are able to assign priority to at this time. In general, when accepting an idea, we strive to deliver the enhancement within 18 months. We will continue to monitor this enhancement for interest, feel free to re-enter the idea in 12 months to see if priorities have shifted. If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.
