Eg, supposing my password is 'foo(bar'
How do I provide this password to jira-cli.jar?
- I assumed the password would have to be escaped, so in my script I would provide 'foo\(bar' instead, however the password then does not match.
There has been problems with this in the past, but most of these issues have been resolved at least in the current 2.7.0-SNAPSHOT. Please report any instances where this is not the case. You must not escape them, but you should always double quote the parameter to cover the case where the password contains a blank or has characters that may interfere with OS command line processing:
--password "xxxx xx"
I will give that another go, I had previously already tried that snapshot, however I did escape the characters (using Ruby's shellwords.escape) rather than using quotation marks so I will try ignoring that and just quoting them instead, however, can I point out that "double-quoting" the parameter will still result in argument expansion if you are using bash.
Additionally, it still does not clarify how you would handle characters such as a literal quotation mark.
