> I want to deploy an artifact on a remote repository using scp (not scpexe) by issuing
the command mvn deploy. In the settings.xml, I have specified an username and the correct
password for the user, and I made sure that the settings file is read by maven. Still, wagon
prompts me for a password when establishing the ssh connection for every ssh access (6 times
for deploying a plugin). If I enter the correct password 6 times, deployment works but typing
the password so often is very tedious.
> I tried to look into the code and although I am not familiar with ssh and jsch, it appears
to me that the problem occurs if the ssh server sends back the authentication method should
be "keyboard-interactive" (see jsch's Session.connect(int) method). Then Jsch does not use
the provided password but tries to prompt it from console. This ends up in Wagon's UserInfoUIKeyboardInteractiveProxy.promptKeybordInteractive()
method.
> If I replace the code in the method promptKeyboardInteractive, which was originally
>         return interactive.promptKeyboardInteractive( destination, name, instruction,
prompt, echo );
> by
>         String[] result = new String[prompt.length];
>         result[0] = userInfo.getPassword();
>         return result;
> (which is a bad hack in my opinion), then the authentication works without having to
type in the password. I did not dig deep enough into the wagon code to see if there is a clean
way to solve this, but perhaps somebody else has an idea.
> I'd be happy to test any other solutions if it is difficult to reproduce the problem
on another Linux Sytem.
