hideGroup passwords are defined in plaintexts


For a hideGroup configuration, we provide the password in plaintext.
Is there any alternative to this configuration where the password is not in plaintext i.e. sourced from somewhere else, like a file?




Instead of setting the hideGroup config in confd.conf, you can set the hideGroup config at runtime.
See ConfD UG “Storing ConfD configuration parameters in CDB” and the examples.confd/confdconf/dyncfg example
