Password storage [OS X] [message #638365] Wed, 10 November 2010 22:13 Go to next message

Hi,

EGit keeps asking for my password in every context it might need it. When I enter it it works, but needless to say not ideal. Wink I'm wondering if maybe I have something messed in my secure storage, or do I need to configure something manually somewhere?

thanks,

Miles

Hi,

What exactly is happening. How do you know EGit is asking?

What password is asked? The ssh-key passphrase?

When did it started? After you have cloned a ssh://... repo?

Ciao
Chris

Hi Chris,

This is using an Eclipse hosted ssh git, i.e.:

Remote Push URL git+ssh://[user]@git.eclipse.org/gitroot/[my repos]

I don't know if that's what you mean below or not. Anytime there is any interaction, I get a password dialog with my user name and (obviously) a blank password.

FWIW, I was able to work around this problem by just including my password in the URL. Or maybe that's what you're supposed to do in the first place..

SSH needs a password all the time. I wonder why EGit doesn't persist it
in the secure storage, though.

However, most of the time people just setup SSH keys and use them all
the time. This requires entering of a pass phrase once and it's
remembered for the lifetime of the Eclipse instance (until next restart).

Thanks Gunnar. Sorry to be dense, but are there docs on setting that up? I assume we set up the pass phrase using cmd-line tools?

Yes.
http://wiki.eclipse.org/EGit/User_Guide/Remote#Eclipse_SSH_C onfiguration

You then need to upload the public signature part of the key to the
remote SSH server once. There should be plenty of info available on this
subject (search keywords: OpenSSH key authorized_keys).

You can also setup ssh keys from within Eclipse, see the user guide at http://wiki.eclipse.org/EGit/User_Guide#Eclipse_SSH_Configur ation
