Red_Hat_Satellite-User_Guide-6.1-en-US-2-4

Section Number and Name: 

In the User Guide, the section on Global Parameters needs to better describe the impact of selecting 'Hidden value'. In section '13.2.1. Creating a Global Simple Parameter',

Describe the issue: 

 step 5 just states 'Select if value is hidden' without providing any insight or indication as to what impact selecting this option has. 

Suggestions for improvement: 

Add more information to that step

Hello

this is just a feature to hide sensitive details in the web UI.

that section "Creating a Global Simple Parameter" is now improved in 6.2 Host Configuration Guide.

See: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en/red-hat-satellite/6.2/single/host-configuration-guide/#sect-Red_Hat_Satellite-Host_Configuration_Guide-Creating_a_Global_Simple_Parameter
