Description Zane Bitter 2021-10-01 19:02:31 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #2004625 +++

Beginning with 4.9, if the user changes the credentials for a BaremetalHost (by editing or changing the Secret that contains them), the baremetal operator may log the new credentials in the process of updating them in Ironic.

This is a very rare event as users don't generally change the BMC credentials, but it should be avoided.
