The password I enter in the task is displayed in plain text when I view "Bamboo plan as java spec" or yaml spec.
How do I display ***** in place of password when viewing the spec?
We wrote the plugin. the password field is created as
[@ww.password labelKey="password" name="xxx" required="true" showPassword="true" /]
When configuring the plan the password is masked and displayed
But when I click view plan spec it is displayed in plain text. How do I display ***** instead of plain text?
You need to change plugin code to use com.atlassian.bamboo.crypto.instance.SecretEncryptionService to encrypt user input before keep it to task configuration.
Then you need to use RuntimeTaskDefinition to provide this value to agent when job is sent for execution.
As reference look at code of Bamboo SCP/SSH plugin, see BaseSshTaskConfigurator.java how to keep config at encrypted state and BaseSshTaskRuntimeDataProvider.java to see how to provide RuntimeTaskData
