The idea is:
In the UI, let credentials have fields overridden from key-value sources, such as env vars, .properties files or what-have-you.
This would make overriding env vars a first-principles concept rather than forcing people to use the
$ENV['var'] hack everywhere, like Loading credentials fields from environment variables - #2 by jan or numerous other questions.
My use case:
12factor app architecture, separation of environments between dev/stage/prod.
I think it would be beneficial to add this because:
It would make OK security the default rather than something you have to search this forum for and manually handle.
Any resources to support this?
Are you willing to work on this?
