    Description

      Chromes auto-fill , populates the username and password of any user who has logged in to Jenkins into the 'bindName' , 'bindPassword' field in the Advanced section of 'Active Directory' under Configure Global Security .

      As a result , on saving this ( without noticing ) , no users are able to login .

      The only way to fix this was to manually edit the config.xml to remove the erroneous <bindName> and restart the Jenkins instance .

      Am calling this a bug due to the disruptive nature of the issue ( which called for a restart of the Jenkins service )

      This happens silently as the 'Advanced fields' are not expanded and thus not seen by default .

      Autocomplete/autopopulate should be blocked for the fields in Active Directory plugin to prevent such cases .

      Thanks
      Taher .

          Comment [ Unfortunately, it happened to me as well and, in my opinion, the severity of this issue should be raised. It can't be acceptable to being locked out only for having the auto-fill enabled in the browser.
