ovirt engine setup log

Description of problem:
Engine setup replaces certain values from ovirt-engine-setup log with '**FILTERED**' string so that sensitive information, such as passwords or usernames won't appear in clear-text. This is very important for security. However, it also filters the word 'engine' from the log, common word, which is used quite often in the log lines, in a non-credential related lines.

Few examples from the log:

'engine' is also a username in the database, for that reason we probably added it to the filtered words list. 

My suggestion is to apply a specific filter only on username related lines in the log, or change the default engine DB username to be uncommon word (if possible), or even remove the word from the filter list.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run engine-setup.

Actual results:
Engine-setup filters the word 'engine' from engine-setup log.

Expected results:
Described above.

Comment 1 Sandro Bonazzola 2018-04-24 11:32:04 UTC
Are you sure you didn't set engine as password?
I can't reproduce this. See http://jenkins.ovirt.org/view/oVirt%20system%20tests/job/ovirt-system-tests_he-basic-ansible-suite-4.2/131/artifact/exported-artifacts/test_logs/he-basic-ansible-suite-4.2/post-004_basic_sanity.py/lago-he-basic-ansible-suite-4-2-engine/_var_log/ovirt-engine/setup/ovirt-engine-setup-20180424033212-yigjyh.log/*view*/ as example log.

If you used engine as password, this is expected behavior. You shouldn't use such weak passwords.

Comment 2 Mor 2018-04-24 11:36:04 UTC
No, we didn't used 'engine' as password for admin.

Comment 3 Sandro Bonazzola 2018-04-24 11:40:48 UTC
ENV OVESETUP_PKI/storePassword=str:'**FILTERED**'

Looks like you set password to engine here.
Closing as not a bug.

Comment 4 Mor 2018-04-24 11:48:57 UTC
For what user did we set the password as 'engine'? I'm logging in into UI using admin with password different than 'engine'.

Comment 5 Sandro Bonazzola 2018-04-24 12:03:27 UTC
(In reply to Mor from comment #4)

It's the password for the Certificate Authority / PKCS12 / PKI.
