Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
user 'XXXXX' is unknown or an invalid password has been provided

When using the Automic Web Interface (AWI) version 12.0.1, all passwords defined in a Login object containing multiple agents are modified upon saving the Login object even if only one password is changed.

Investigation

One login is created with 3 rows, one row for 3 different agents and one job is run on each agent.

Results:
 
Actual
The first time the login is created and all fields are filled out, everything works fine.
=> 3 jobs OK. No error messages

If one row is modified, with the right password, the job can run correctly only on the agent written in the modified row.
=> 1 job OK. 2 jobs KO with error message : "user 'XXXXX' is unknown or an invalid password has been provided."

Expected
The first time the login is created and all fields are filled out, everything works fine.
=> 3 jobs OK. No error messages
 
If one row is modified, with the right password, only that row is modified and the job can run successfully on all Agents.
=> 3 jobs OK. No error messages
