Subject [jira] Commented: (MRELEASE-340) Don't store the scm password in plaintext in release.properties
Date Thu, 10 Feb 2011 13:50:22 GMT

    [ http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MRELEASE-340?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=255561#action_255561
] 

Benjamin Bentmann commented on MRELEASE-340:
--------------------------------------------

Not sure since when but recent versions of the plugin support to read the credentials from
the {{settings.xml}}, using the host name part of the SCM URL as the id to locate a {{<server>}}
entry. AFAICT, this approach doesn't leak the passwords into the {{release.properties}}.

> The scm password is stored in plaintext in release.properties file.  I think it would
be safe not to save it there, then always prompt the user for the password every time.
