Build definition with HIDDEN property

I am using RTC 5.0.2 with JBE.

I have a build process that is necessary to connect in a server to execute some build stepd.

Using build definition, I created USERNAME and PASSWORD properties and I am trying to use it in my ANT script to connect. It is necessary because every developer that is requesting a build needs to autenthicate in server thes is used in build process, so for every build request is necessary to inform username and password.

I defined PASSWORD property as HIDDEN (using HIDDEN expression in description)

I am trying to use PASSWORD property value in ANT script but I am having some problems with it.

<exec command = "execname.exe -user ${USERNAME} -password ${PASSWORD}" />

But I can not see and use the value of PASSWORD property when I am executing my ANT script.

Is there a way to do it without expose PASSWORD?

Not sure how you made it "hidden" and how it did not work for you. But this post may be a good read.

Note that RTC Ant build also has an attribute called "password". Make sure there are no conflicts between the attribute and the one you define.
