Subject Re: [OT][ALL] Eclipse Neon not saving credentials on MacOS/X
Date Sat, 25 Mar 2017 18:37:58 GMT
I'm not a recent eclipse user, but one of the most common reasons for
credentials not being saved in the keychain is an invalid application
signature. If there is anything that stores it's config in the part of the
.app directory structure that is signed then saving to the keychain will
stop working. IntelliJ IDEA used to have this issue because there were some
config files you had to edit to customize some java behaviors that were in
the signed area, but they now have a provision for overriding them in your
Library/Preferences folder. There is a way to generate a new signature on
the app, and the best instructions I can find for it are the second answer
here:

http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/3271/how-to-get-rid-of-firewall-accept-incoming-connections-dialog

I'd recommend doing the last step before starting just to verify if the
signature is indeed bad.
