Embedded passwords and security

Hi,

we use Teamcity for our build and deployment tasks.  We often use psexec to execute tasks on remote hosts (install msi's, stop start services etc).  How can we pass a username and password to such a task while keeping the username and password secret from people who view the logs from team city?

We mostly use nant as the runner.

We have discussed using environment variables, but that doesn't seem very secure to us.  I'm pretty sure it would be expanded in the log anyway.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Tom Chau

ps.  Happy New Year ^_^

From the similiar issue TW6430:

Possible approaches:
A: add debug mode for log display and include the command line when the mode is ON only. Add permission for the debug mode turning
B: allow to specify the list of values to convert to *** when displaying. Support property references in the list
C: add a permission to view the build log

What will be the approach to be taken and do you have the idea when it will put into patch?

Thanks,
Tom
