How to fix the issue of plain text password in the logs

Keywords: Tomcat - Other - How to - Credentials

I am using bitnami 9.0.45 to deploy our containerized application onto kubernetes. This web app connects to a remote database, and the credentials for the same are defined in the config map and the secrets as the variables and the values are set in the helm values.yaml. I am deploying the containerized app through the Gitlab CI, wherein after the successful deployment I can see the DB password in the plaintext in the console logs, whereas we have set DB password to be base 64 encoded on the gitlab CI, upon deployment it just shows the plain text password but not the base 64enc, which is a security issue for the organization. Please advise how to solve this ?
