This is fixed upstream here: https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-42950

We need to bump to version 1.19 of the Credentials Binding Plugin
Our current version of the plugin is credentials-binding:1.15

This seems like a different issue to me. Perhaps JENKINS-42950 should have its own CVE assigned, we should contact upstream for clarification.

@Eric you can manipulate the permissions that jenkins users have with our login plugin such that they cannot view jenkins credentials,
and you can do this such that those permissions are in place prior to the initial launch of jenkins.

Also remember, OpenShift users can create / start pipeline jobs without having to log into the Jenkins console.

And lastly, rather than a centralized Jenkins server, a cluster admin can provision a Jenkins server for each dev
if they like (at much less memory most likey than a shared, common, Jenkins server).  These Jenkins servers 
could then only contain the credentials the give developer is allowed to look at.

So the KCS article that Akram is working describes these workarounds.
