How to write data source password in config files

Hi all,
I am writing the config files to feed dbsight using some scripts and meta data we have gathered. Every thing is going fine except for the database password. How should I encode the password in order to allow dbsight to understand it?

Plain text password should work.

btw: may you could let us know your use case, so we can built some feature to help instead of relying on scripts.

Thanks for the prompt respond Will.

No really special use case. The information for index creation was gathered by someone else using plain text files, now I have to create the config files based on that information.
