    Default Unable to insert Variable in pass field Mail Job

    Hello all,

    I'm new here with kettle and I'm learning step by step. I hope you can help me a bit with a problem I encountered.

    The problem is that I want to parametrize all the fields of the transformations and jobs of my Kettle proyect, but there is one problem with the Mail Job, because it doesn't allow me to insert a variable in the password field of the authentication part of the server tab.

    Well, it allow me to select and insert the variable I have defined before (in another job), but when I put it, automatically it is converted to *********. That doesn't happen with others objects like get or put in FTP, in this objects, the password can be and it appears as a variable, like {$PASSWORD}.

    You know if this is a "known" bug? I'm doing something wrong?

    Thank you in advance.

    I wouldn't call it a bug. Actually, it's more of an inconsistency.
    If you want to see it straightened out, you can file a request.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Thanks for your answer marabu. Do you know any other "Mail" object, job or plugin for Kettle 4.4 in addition to the one that comes by default in Kettle 4.4?
