Subject [jira] [Created] (AIRFLOW-45) Support hidden Airflow variables
Date Tue, 03 May 2016 22:29:12 GMT
Chris Riccomini created AIRFLOW-45:

             Summary: Support hidden Airflow variables
                 Key: AIRFLOW-45
             Project: Apache Airflow
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: security
            Reporter: Chris Riccomini

We have a use case where someone wants to set a variable for their DAG, but they don't want
it visible via the UI. I see that variables are encrypted in the DB (if the crypto package
is installed), but the variables are still visible via the UI, which is a little annoying.

Obviously, this is not 100% secure, since you can still create a DAG to read the variable,
but it will at least keep arbitrary users from logging in/loading the UI and seeing the variable.

I propose basically handling this the same way that DB hook passwords are handled. Don't show
them in the UI when the edit button is clicked, but allow the variables to be editable.
