That might be helpful setting up command which require credentials.

    Ok, thanks for this information, ut I actually used the > for writing
    credentials to a simple ini file.

    To be more specific: Transifex does not allow to download translations
    As a workaround I would like to place the following file
    %userprofile%\.transifexrc containing some credentials for Transifex, but
    therefore writing this file should not be logged.

    Build 11 contains a build where it was working:
    It passed downloading the translations. (but failed because of a test, does
    not matter)

    I changed the password for the transifex account. before the test and after
    it again, of course ;)

    Thanks for your support.

    You can put credentials to environment variables on project settings or to secure variables if you use appveyor.yml, so in build log you'll see only variable names, not their actual values.
