I am using a
yaml file to configure a jenkins job, and I came across the feature
inject-passwords (see here). However, this documentation neither describes on how to use the variable within the jenkins environment, nor what 'encrypted' password means (How to encrypt?). The link leading to the EnvInjectPlugin also does not have the required information.
Where can I find useful information/documentation? And why is this documentation so incomplete?
I want to inject passwords in a safe way into a jenkins job. In this jenkins job I want to use this password as a password to log in to an online service in order to test several aspects of that service. I need the test script to get that password (environment variable?) to be able to log in to a service.
