Ke Jia commented on HIVE-13589:
-------------------------------

Hi [~thejas], current patch works with the case specifying '- p' without an argument to make
beeline prompt for password.  However it  only support the case with "- p" following by the
specified option  which are added in the Beeline.java [L290-L391]. If not, Apache common CLI
will consider the option as the value of "- p".  We can limit user to put the "- p" by the
end of command line. Do you have better suggestions?

> Specifying connection string using commandline options in beeline is convenient, as it
gets saved in shell command history, and it is easy to retrieve it from there.
> However, specifying the password in command prompt is not secure as it gets displayed
on screen and saved in the history.
> It should be possible to specify '-p' without an argument to make beeline prompt for
password.
