Get Password field from Rest API


i would like to store some “sensitives” data in a “password” field in a collection.
I need to get/post/put the password from rest API.

the “Private field” is not checked in my collection.
i cannot get the “password” field in the http response.

Any advice to get or store this sensitives datas ?


I believe by default any password field type is not included in API responses for security reasons, regardless of the checkbox “Private field” when editing the field.

If true, then I’d suggest that at least the “Private field” checkbox should be disabled for the password field type.

This was previously answered here, and they suggest making a custom controller if you really want to send passwords in an API response:
