Is it possible to provide password properties NIFI a HIDDEN SHOW like behavior ?

Is it possible to provide password properties NIFI a HIDDEN SHOW like behavior ?

In controller-services, for ex: HiveConnectionPool there is a property called "Password". Is it possible to add the capability of hidden show (input type="password") like behaviour? through code changes in NIFI framework ?

What is the use-case where you want to show the password?

Currently in HiveConnectionPool, the box where we enter password is textarea and the password characters that we type are visible. After finishing, the password will no longer be visible as it is a sensitive property. One of the end-users made a request to us that the characters should not be visible when the admin types the password for the first time ( this will rather be done by a admin through remote connect during deployment). Rather they meant it should behave like password box and not like text area...
