comment How do you manage passwords in your team for db with multiple env and security constraints?
I'm not sure my question is very clear... The problem is not when accessing the db from the application. It's occurring when developing the application: as dev we have to log in the db for maintenance: prepare update db schema, data clearing, whatever sql scripts that will be run by the prod on release. This is when the problem arise: when logging to our dev/uat databases with our db tools (toad, sql developer, eclipse plugin, sqlplus, ...) to prepare and tests these scripts.

I have been reading your answer to fast. The LastPass evocation may have trigger a skip this answer reflex... But your suggestion is good and keepass.info looks good.

I'm not deciding for what the rules are... I just forced to follow them.. My problem are more related to database usage than generic application, and I never see dev having their own username/password in this area...Having a "method" is also a way to reduce password being sent around in mail/chat every days and to avoid each one storing a password list in a txt or excel file... that is breaking the security more than having a secure way of remember the passwords.

Thanks, but I don't want a storage tool: I'm looking for a method that help every dev to remember what is the password for any db at any moment without relying only to its memory

How to separate critical changes from cosmetic one when you receive several lot of 10 to 20 files ? Scanning the changes already takes precious time...

No guideline, no tools, no distribution: it is more a good practice set up by developers. Main idea is to proof reading incoming changes.

I don't seek the perfect job, I just wish I can have more freedom on tools selection. I know I'm in the average area here: I have been able to select some minors OS frameworks and my own IDE on all my jobs. I know people that are forced to use every bloated tools provided by the company. I also know software shops where dev choices are respected ( like choosing its own OS/IDE (easy for a Java dev) or the source versionning system used by the team... The difficult part is that freedom is quite often not exposed in job offers...

Good advice, but it's a little bit extreme... I know that the kind of job that give you a little extra freedom are still around, but I just feel difficult to find them...

Yeah, that are valuables advices... Maybe there is too much randomness in it: while job environment is crappy pick another job.

Maybe they play golf with the top management from the other company ? Or maybe they have shares of the other company ?

Convincing the team is one thing, convincing the top management is another: Listen big boss, your HAL software collection is too crappy, now we will use this very cool and cheap product instead.
