Subject [jira] [Resolved] (INFRA-9421) Enable authenticated access to ASF Buildbot
Date Thu, 14 Mar 2019 01:14:00 GMT


Chris Lambertus resolved INFRA-9421.
    Resolution: Won't Fix

There's been no pressing need for this in the entire time buildbot's been around, and there
have been no other calls for this since this ticket was created ~4ish years ago. If a use
case presents itself in the future, we can re-evaluate, but until then, this is off the table.

> Currently the ASF Buildbot does not support authenticated access due to past difficulties
and limited authentication. Its authentication mechanisms have improved, and now support multiple
users. It would be great to be able to have authenticated access to Buildbot functions like
forced builds via HTTP eventually.
> The Buildbot docs currently allow for a file to be used to specify authenticated users,
in place of the more basic single-user mechanism available in the past. Reference:
