Hello all!

Thanks alot K! Although I have to admit, that it seems too insecure, at least for the tool I am currently working on. The password field is needed to connect to a database, which contains (sensitive) patient data. Revealing the password to someone else by accident when re-running a job could give him or her access to data he or she should have never access to.
In spite of everything, thank you again!

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

I have attached a patch that does this below. You can use it by
setting<param type="password">  However the security is lacking as you
can see the string when you try to re-run the job and view source. Is
this sufficient for your purposes?

Thanks,

K

Hi all!

Is there any way to use password input fields ("<input type="password"...")
with tools? A tools XML definition file only seems to support text and
textarea fields. I already tried setting a tools parameter type to
"password", which unfortunately results in an "Unknown tool parameter type
'password'". Trying "password="True"" (like "area="True"") does not result
in an error, but the text field is still just a normal text field.
I may be mistaken, as I am new to Python and Galaxy, but there already seems
to be a PasswordField class and a TextField class, which both can be found
in several files. Was the PasswordField class for tool parameters maybe
disabled for a reason?

Thanks!
Daniel
