The incorrect display of password might cause issues when saving the record(s).

NOTE: This behavior was currently seen in particular SM versions as below, using Chrome browser:

SM RTE: 9.35.2003
SM APP: 7.11.000
Web Client: 9.35.2003
Chrome: 47.0.2526.80

It is not seen in 9.35 APP/RTE and 9.4x APP/RTE with Chrome/Internet Explorer.

Cause

The problem is related to Chrome passwords settings.

Open Chrome browser, select Settings > Show advanced settings > Passwords and forms

The wrong behavior in SM web tier was only observed when option "Offer to save your web passwords" was checked.

Fix

To workaround this issue, user could uncheck "Offer to save your web passwords" option in Chrome settings in above screenshot, then close whole Chrome browser and open a new one.

After logging in SM with the newly opened login page, user will see the password field is showing expected value.
