Bug report #8902

DB connection credentials on tooltips

Added by Paolo Cavallini almost 10 years ago. Updated almost 10 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.0.1 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:17580


Showing DB credentials on the tooltip on mouse over the legend seems an useless
security flaw (e.g. these can accidentally be shown during a demo, etc.).
Better hiding them, leaving other connections parameters visible for debugging.
