After entering the password in the LDAP Configuration page and saving, the password field in blank.
Release : 21.2.6
Component : OneClick / LDAP Configuration
This was a change in Spectrum 21.2.6 for security reasons. When there are "*" characters in the Password field as in previous Spectrum releases, someone could view the unencrypted password in the browser by clicking on "view page source".
When the password is entered and the Save button is clicked, the password is saved to the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/spectrum/META-INF/context.xml page and encrypted.
When running a Test in the LDAP Configuration page, you will need to re-enter the password then test. You do not need to click on the Save button as the password is already saved to the context.xml file.
The only time you need to click on the Save button is if the LDAP configuration parameters are changed.
