Passing password during git clone from shell script

I have written a shell script to clone the project from multiple location which is sent as a file.
I read the file and pass the each location in a loop and perform my operation.

LocationFile.txt

Project1=https://enduser1@stash.my.org/my/path/testProject1.git
Project2=https://enduser2@stash.my.org/my/path/testProject2.git
Project3=https://enduser3@stash.my.org/my/path/testProject3.git
Project4=https://enduser4@stash.my.org/my/path/testProject3.git


Password.txt

Project1=password1
Project2=password2
Project3=password3
Project4=password4


I have a password file encrypted and stored in server, which I can read as part of script and passing into my script
When I run my script during clone step its prompting for a password, I tried to pass the password like below which is not working

##############
gitpassword=$password1 #retrieved from Password.txt

for xxx
do
...
...
git clone "${ProjectArrayList[1]}"
read $gitpassword
...
..
done
##############


I know I can do password less if I use ssh, which I don't want to do.
Is there a way to achieve this with my exsiting approach

Answer

You can use the expect and send functions to simulate user input automatically.

Here is what the syntax would be like:

expect -c 'spawn sudo git clone "${ProjectArrayList[1]}"; expect assword; send "password\n"; interact'
