Enable usage of secure properties in Realm configuration

Currently UCD Authentication and Authorization realm does not support usage of properties instead of hardcoded value for secured properties like password/secret etc. The compliance processes in our organization does not allow human access to the password or secret due to which it is difficult to enter the password directly into the realm configuration.

Instead if UCD can support usage of properties in authentication/authorization realm configuration then we can create the password property using CLI and use it.

    Thank you for submitting this RFE. Our development team is stating it is not advisable to expose the secure properties. As a result, we are chaing the state of this idea to 'Not under consideration'.

    However, we are considering to expose an API to create or update Authentication and Authorization Realms. There is another RFE submitted by UBS which is URBANCODE-I-614 which we will leverage to provide this capability. Please track this idea for updates in the future.

    As always, please let us know if you have any concerns or more details to share. We appreciate your idea submissions. In this case, our development team has concerns about exposing the secure properties. Thank you!
