In PAM User console, for the password Checkout feature, after user checks-out, the credentials are displayed for 8 seconds and then hidden.

The user can click 'Show credentials' to display it again for 8 sec.

Need user configurable option.


  • Potential client asked about this during a demo.

  • Worse, when after the 8 (10 seconds I think actually) you click enter password to reveal them (A good feature), the obvious button that it looks like to click is Checkin Password. When what you need to do is hit return. This is a misleading UI feature and most of the time, the user ends up checking the password back in again. So they have to repeat the process.

    The GUI is very misleading in this use case.
