qbhash takes a clear-text password as input, and displays the hashed (encrypted) string for it.
qbhash is used to display the hash for any provided password; this is used to generate the encryption string for storing passwords in the various configuration files for 2 scenarios:
- for defining proxy_password, used by the worker to authenticate as a proxy user. Refer to Service Mode vs. Desktop User Mode for more details on this subject.
- for defining database_password, used to store the password for the Supervisor to access the database server instance hosting the qube database.
Allows specifying password in an option, instead of from stdin
