      Description

      After upgrading to 2.7 from 2.6.1, I noticed that several of my jobs were not showing up in my Jenkins dashboard.
      Looking at jenkins.err.log shows this:

      The jobs that failed to load were the ones that had specified passwords.

      I tried to add a new password to the global Jenkins configuration, but the change did not save after I hit submit.
      Reverting to 2.6.1 "fixes" the problem.
