Storing encrypted credentials and retrieving them

So I've been looking at this blog post from 10 years ago:

https://www.splunk.com/en_us/blog/security/storing-encrypted-credentials.html

But what is outlined there does not seem to work. I have the following setup.xml file:

<setup>
<block title="Specify a Proofpoint token to access logs" endpoint="storage/passwords" entity="_new">
<input field="prooftoken">
<label>Proofpoint token</label>
<type>password</type>
</input>
</block>
</setup>

Per the blog post my token should be stored in app.conf and that is simply not the case.

I have a UI rendered asking me to specify a token (per the .XML above) but upon hitting save, I see no evidence of retention in any .conf file.

Just had the same problem. What the documentation does not say is that the field values have to be "username" and "password". One can't define their own
