Hello Ivan, 

The password we enter on the Web UI under Administer-> Settings-> Remote Execution -> Sudo Password, is not encrypted. So, the request is to encrypt/add asterisk instead of plain text in the place of password.

I hope I am clear. Please correct me if this meant to be like this.

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/27481 has been resolved.

on sat6.7.0-14

The passwords are masked in the API,CLI,UI output.

# hammer settings list | grep sudo_password
remote_execution_sudo_password                         | Sudo password                                               | *****                                                                            | Sudo password         

The sudo password is not displayed in the task details
