    Description

      If I give the git plugin a URL like:

      https://person:password@host/path.git

      1. The password is stored in the config.xml but never displayed in the box.
      2. The password is removed from the URL sent to the server.
      3. The build hangs after git prints a password prompt.


      a. There should be a separate text field for the password, perhaps?
      b. If the URL has a password, it should not be stripped before it is sent in the command line to the server.
      c. it should not hang due to a missing password, it should fail.

            I would like a separate text field for the password (I'm using git via SSH for example) too, and for the password to actually work when fetching/cloning. Such functionality would resolve an issue I filed (7346).

            Credentials plugin support that is available with recent versions of the git plugin and the git client plugin provide a centralized solution for this bug.
