Configuration History in Admin UI showing clear text password

In my IdM systems, I am having a strange issue:

In the configuration history tab in my test system, the passwords for the backend user is shown in clear text. In my development system, the passwords are masked (****) as I would expect.

I have checked the setting on MX_PARAMETER to see if that had anything to do with it, and they are set the same in the 2 systems. Although it seems unlikely that this is related...

The repository constant data type is set as Password, and Encrypt Value is ticked.

When I change/ update the password for the repository, the new value shows up masked. But the initial entry still shows the password unmasked...

Anyone knows why this is happening, and what I can do to hide the password?

IdM 8, SP3, Red Hat Linux, Oracle DB

Hi Henrik,

I do not know, but I would recomend that you open a high priority note on this right away.
