Build log redaction is too aggressive

I understand that workflow logs redact some output by replacing that output with astrisks.  However it seems that it is redacting content that is not secret, for example the word “build” in my job named “Do the Linux build” is redacted:

Anyone have insight into this?

I’m afraid that I can’t see that screenshot.

Whenever I’ve run into this, it’s because I’ve set up a secret that contains that value and it’s being scrubbed according to the normal secrets-redaction rules.  For example, I’ve set up secrets like REMOTE_USERNAME and REMOTE_PASSWORD.  And when REMOTE_USERNAME is build, you’ll see that word redacted.

Right on in this case. :slight_smile:

Thanks.
