Build log redaction is too aggressive

Solved! Go to Solution.

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.
