Huge usability problem could lead to public display of passwod

Charlie Hayes December 18, 2021

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open link to private jira in a browser without an existing jira session

2. Fill in email address to log in (but make a typo)

3. Enter password in the following screen that looks exactly identical to the "login screen" you're used to


Expected result:

Password is masked


Actual result:

Password is displayed in clear text


I tried to report this as a bug but Jira support website blocked me from doing so because I'm not an admin. Sad news: your best bug reports are going to come from people that aren't admins. Admins will likely filter out all the tickets they feel are not worth filing nor will they follow up for details.

I am completely unable to replicate this - every password box on the Jira systems I can find does the *** thing, whatever I enter into the email address or user id fields.

Could you show us a screenshot, or even tell us the url so we can try it for ourselves?
