Execute external script from JIRA with username and password

Does anybody have a solution for executing a Groovy script from JIRA passing username and password? We are deploying from JIRA and our deploy tool need the user and password.

We can open a screen asking for password during transition in a workflow but then the password will be logged in the JIRA issue. We are also unable to mask the password field in the screen without writing our own renderer plugin.

Any suggestions?

You can create an application link to establish OAuth and then it's not necessary to use the usr / pwd.
