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.
