ConfigXmlGenerator Masking Should Be Optional #12217
ConfigXmlGenerator masks certain fields like passwords. This is unnecessary since the person creating the hazelcast.xml should already know the values or they should be input by an end user installing the application. By masking the fields automatically the end user is forced to manually edit the hazelcast.xml, which creates a manual step in what should be automated process. Also, if the configuration needs to be changed and the ConfigXmlGenerator is used again, the fields are masked again and the user's values are lost. By making the masking optional the application developer can create an installer which queries the end user for the sensitive values and stores them in the hazelcast.xml.
