Entering Passwords

Wherever a password argument is required (such as -w bind-password or -q configuration_password), you can use the “ -” argument to tell the password program to read the password from STDIN.

If you use the “-” value for multiple password options, idsync will prompt you for passwords based on the arguments’ order.

In this case, the program would expect the bind-password first, and then for the configuration-password.
