Building for the Splunk Platform

Splunk JS SDK password API response returns plain password

I have used Splunk setup view as a replacement of setup.xml.

For this, I have used Splunk JS SDK. I have a password field on the setup page. JS SDK saves the encrypted password in the 'local/FILENAME.conf' file.

This JS SDK internally calls Splunk API. The password API(https://{HOST_NAME}/en-US/splunkd/__raw/servicesNS/nobody/{TA_NAME}/storage/passwords?count=0&output_mode=json) response returns both plain password & encrypted password.

How to avoid plain password in Splunk's password API response?

Thanks in advance.
