9.3.1. Kafka scheduler and SASL_PLAINTEXT credentials

Is there a preferred approach for passing SASL_PLAINTEXT username & password to vkconfig?

Documentation suggests setting sasl.username and sasl.password to rdkafka via kafka_conf -parameter, but these expose the credentials to logs as cleartext with COPY commands generated by the scheduler.
