I want to output the password of the keystore file for apk generation registered in Visual Studio App Center

I have registered the keystore file and password to sign when generating Android apk in Visual Studio App Center. I placed the same keystore file on my local machine and built it on the actual machine, but I accidentally deleted the build.gradle that contains password. As a result of various investigations, I tried the following, but so far I have not reached the password.

  • I contacted the Visual Studio App Center, but answered that it could not be disclosed due to security reasons.
  • I registered appcenter-pre-build.sh additionally in Visual Studio App Center and tried to output the environment variable, but it is blocked (the moment appcenter-pre-build.sh works, the corresponding environment variable is entered. Is it because it isn't?)
  • I checked the build log of the local machine, but the key-alias ​​is output as it is, but the store-password is output as ***, so I can not confirm it
  • I'm using Simply Bruteforce, Smart Wordlist Attack using https://maxcamillo.github.io/android-keystore-password-recover/, but I haven't been able to reach my password so far.

If you know any other method I can take besides the above, please let me know.

    I lost access to the vault where I stored these passwords, I solved echoing them to a file, encoding it in some way, and display it so encoded content goes in the log. Then it's easy to grab encoded string from log an decoding it locally
