Masking password in view plan as spec


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?

What's the task plugin?

Please contact support if plugin is provided by Atlassian or plugin vendor otherwise.

There's nothing you can do to avoid such situation as a user.

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 Screen Shot 2021-03-09 at 10.42.31 AM.png



But when I click view plan spec it is displayed in plain text. How do I display ***** instead of plain text?



I see.

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 how to keep config at encrypted state and to see how to provide RuntimeTaskData
