password

The password output type allows you to define read-only password text fields that will appear on the Stack Overview page which can be used to display passwords to the Dell Cloud Manager console end user.

The password is “concealed” by default and can be “revealed” by clicking on a reveal button.

A password output is defined with a section name, type, description (optional), value and properties (optional).
