Description of problem:
HTTP proxy password will reset to empty string after editing the existing HTTP proxy in the Web UI.
#<ActiveRecord::Relation [#<HttpProxy id: 5, name: "test_proxy", url: "http://xx.xx.xx.xx:xxxx", username: "myname", password: "encrypted-blah blah blah">]>
#<ActiveRecord::Relation [#<HttpProxy id: 5, name: "test_proxy", url: "http://xx.xx.xx.xx:xxxx", username: "myname", password: "">]>
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a http proxy with username and password
2. Add it as the global content proxy.
3. Ensure it is working by enabling a repository or doing cdn scans.
4. Edit the http proxy you just created, don't do anything just click save button.
5. Try to enable a repository again using hammer
hammer repository-set enable --name "Red Hat Satellite Tools 6.7 for RHEL 8 x86_64 (RPMs)" --organization redhat
Could not enable repository:
407 "Proxy Authentication Required"
Cdn scan in Web UI -> Red Hat Repositories gets the following error:
No repositories available error.
Able list available repositories
Able enable repository successfully
issue still exists in 6.8 snap 11
Its confusing because there are some grey stars in that field so you do not realise you have lost your password.

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/30684 has been resolved.
Tested on Satellite 6.9.0 Snap 12 using the reproducer from the original report. Creating a HTTP proxy, and resubmitting it later without any changes doesn't reset the password anymore, Satellite is still able to authenticate with the proxy correctly.
There is still a minor issue submitted as BZ1928194, but that one is minor.
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
