Password Capabilities?

During the installation of an application that we have on many of our Macs, the local User or Field Tech is asked to enter a password. The same password is used with every installation. To keep this process more automated, is there a method in Jamf where I could add that password to the Application install? I know this is not recommended for security reasons but in this case everyone internally already knows this password. Thanks!

@MacGeek I assume these are downloaded or physical disk installations? If they were policy derived auto or self service based installs then the installation would be run as root so the password predicament you have here wouldn't be one.
