Saving aliases

There is a new command available for the Knox Gateway role which allows end-users to save an alias=password pair to an arbitrary number of topologies on each host where an instance of the Knox Gateway is installed without the need of running the Knox CLI tool manually.

A new password-type input field is added, called save_alias_command_input_password. The format of an entry in this input field should be: topology_name_1[:topology_name_2:...:topology_name_N].alias_name=password

Example: cdp-proxy-api:admin:metadata.knoxLdapSystemPassword=guest-password.

After the end-user entered a meaningful and valid value and saved the configuration changes he/she can run the command from Knox’s action list: Actions/Save Alias.
