      Description

      When choosing Test LDAP Connection for Hue's Actions in Cloudera Manager, the LDAP password is exposed in plain text in stdout:

      *** ldap://w2k8-1.ad.xxx.cloudera.com:3268 - SimpleLDAPObject.simple_bind (['ccoxxxer@AD.SEC.CLOUDERA.COM', 'RAWPASSWORD', None, None],{})
      

      I replaced my password with 'RAWPASSWORD' above.
      We need to redact or obfuscate that.
