katello-configure doesn't ave answer file "Default-answer-file" documented
Last modified: 2016-08-04 13:14:02 EDT
When using katello-configure it is possible to use an answer file "Default-answer-file" to pass options, this is supported but not documented. This is a problem because users can password passwords as command line options, which an attacker may see (by running ps for example). The safer alternative is for a user to use an answer file, so the password is not exposed. If the "Default-answer-file" answer file can be documented I would appreciate that, thanks!

Suggestions for improvement:
Assigning to Ali for review.
It looks like we document the answer file here:
Does that sufficiently meet your request?
Ah ok, it wasn't in the man pages and no mention of passwords/etc occurred in the docs. Maybe it could be improved to make it easier to find.
We're working on improving the structure of the guide for the next release. Since the content is there, I think it's ok to close this one since it'll be covered by that effort.
