Subject [jira] Created: (CONTINUUM-2461) Make used cached credentials a global setting
Date Mon, 08 Feb 2010 15:54:55 GMT
Make used cached credentials a global setting

                 Key: CONTINUUM-2461
             Project: Continuum

          Components: SCM
    Affects Versions: 1.3.4
            Reporter: Wendy Smoak

Users in a corporate environment are required to change their passwords quite often, which
leads to locked accounts if Continuum has stored the old password.  Besides that, storing
passwords in plain text as Continuum does violates the security rules.

Therefore, we train everyone to check the "use cached credentials" box when adding projects,
and run a daily cron job with an sql statement to modify the database (set the flag, delete
userid/password) for those who forget.

Since we want Continuum to NEVER store scm credentials and ALWAYS use the cached credentials
we provide, we would like to set this option once, globally, rather than have it set on every
