Now that there is the option to use secure parameters, there needs to be a good way to prompt a console user for a password or some other input that would be concealed as they type.
action parameter query secure
See this example action which requires the user to input their console operator password in order to automatically generate uninstaller tasks using the RESTAPI:
This can be achieved by requiring the user to enter their password in an HTML form in the description of the task, but this is problematic if the user doesn’t realize that they need to do this, but also is problematic for inclusion in a baseline, which is another place which secure parameters may be needed, but currently doesn’t work well. (or at all?)
If this isn’t already an RFE, then I need to file one.
