Parameter for Effective user password

It’s not perse a problem but is there a way to set the Effective user password per host_group via parameter? We have different clients in different setups/environments which need a different password for remote execution to work properly. So far I’ve been using the Apply via customized remote execution option to set the password when applying Erratas and such. But would be nice if we can set the password so that one would just hit apply. I might be just blind and don’t see that option in the docs… in that case I’m already apologizing in advance!

Foreman and Proxy versions:
foreman: 3.7.0

Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:
foreman-tasks 8.1.1
foreman_puppet 6.0.0
foreman_remote_execution 10.0.5
katello 4.9.1

Distribution and version:
Rocky Linux release 8.8 (Green Obsidian)

Disregard - I misread your request.

This one is not shown near the settings, but there is also a parameter remote_execution_effective_user_password if I read the code right. So setting this at Host group level should solve your issue.

@Dirk Thank you! That did indeed work. Now that I search for that parameter in the docs I do see it there. Sorry about being blind… Have a great day!
