How to stop autofilling password on some Jenkins pages?

Posted

I'm using Jenkins on Firefox. The login/password is filled automatically when I login to Jenkins. That's great. But when I access a Jenkins job page that uses some plugins with password field, my password will be filled in there too. The password field here is supposed to set the password for that plugin, but not my password. Is there any way limit the Firefox to only fill password on the login page, but not on the job pages?

Hi zhangyuhangk, I don't think Firefox's Password Manager can distinguish different paths under the same host name. Or in other words, if you saved a login for

https://www.example.com/

then it likely will be filled for all URLs on

https://www.example.com/

but probably not for a different hostname such as

https://jobs.example.com/

If you want to fine tune by the URL/path under the host name, I think you probably need to remove this login from the built-in Password manager and use an add-on password manager for the site.
