Subject RE: Store passwords while using a different username
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2015 17:42:45 GMT
Additional information that might be useful

SVN server is at version 1.7.X

I'm running the commands on AIX 7 with client
svn, version 1.8.0 (r1490375)

However, this issue doesn't occur on Linux with the following svn client versions
svn, version 1.8.13 (r1667537)
svn, version 1.7.7 (r1393599)

That got me wondering if this is a problem with the client version..
So I removed the contents in $HOME/.subversion did an svn log https://SVN_REPO on the AIX
host and it prompted me for a password,
But, it didn't give this message which I would normally expect when I connect to subversion
the first time or when my password has changed.

Authentication realm: <https://svn:443> CollabNet Subversion Repository
Password for 'atati':

ATTENTION!  Your password for authentication realm:

   <https://svn:443> CollabNet Subversion Repository

can only be stored to disk unencrypted!  You are advised to configure
your system so that Subversion can store passwords encrypted, if
possible.  See the documentation for details.

You can avoid future appearances of this warning by setting the value
of the 'store-plaintext-passwords' option to either 'yes' or 'no' in
'$HOME/.subversion/servers'.

Store password unencrypted (yes/no)?

Subject: Store passwords while using a different username

Hi,

Is it possible to store password when a subversion query is being done as a different user.

Say I'm user foo and would like to run "svn log --username bar https://<SVN_REPO<https://%3cSVN_REPO>>"

I'm prompted for user bar's credentials and the command succeeds when bar is successfully
authenticated.

The next time foo runs the command "svn log https://<SVN_REPO<https://%3cSVN_REPO>>",
I'm directly prompted for bar's credentials. Is there a way to store bar's credentials and
not be prompted every time?

Thanks,
Aslesh Tati
