Mike Drob created ACCUMULO-1412:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Allow shell password to come from a variety of sources
                 Key: ACCUMULO-1412
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1412
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: shell
            Reporter: Mike Drob
            Assignee: Mike Drob
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.6.0


OpenSSL allows the user to read the password from a number of places, including a file, environment
variable, file descriptor, command line argument, or standard in. It would be nice for accumulo
to do the same, to ease scripting while still not revealing password through {{ps}} or it's
brethren.

A logical way to implement this might be using a [JCommander Custom Type|http://jcommander.org/#Custom_types]
for the password field.
