Subject Re: Review Request 16385: Fix for CloudStack JIRA 4406

Ok, got it, somehow missed the “hardcoded” parameters part. In this case
true is fine as the parameter in @ApiCommand just triggers the validation.
We only have to fix one part - instead of hardcoding the parameter(s) to
hide, we have to come up with the new parameter in @Parameter to trigger
the exclusion from the logs.

Thank you,
