XML URL - no authentication - no User/Password promt ? [message #778350] Thu, 12 January 2012 14:14 Go to next message

Hi,

I have a strange problem with a BIRT Report. The report uses a XML DataSource URL from a web server which needs a user basic authentication.
In the past when I created such a new XML DataSource and click on the button 'Test Connection' eclipse prompted me with a username/password dialog. Also when I start my report with the menu action 'Run->view Report->in Web Viewer'.

But suddenly this is no longer working. Now I always got an HTTP Error 401 (Unauthorized response) and I got no chance to type in my username/password?

Did anybody know about that problem? I don't think that I have changed anything in my Eclipse or Server environment. And I have still designed different reports. So I know that this worked in the past.

Thanks for any help

Ralph

The problem was because I was running eclise in gnome shell. I solved the problem by providing a special start script.

The xml data source does not handle authentication (Unless you are using
custom code) so this must be coming from the browser?

Hi Jason,

thanks for your response. I have tested it on different clients. Normally when I create a new Data set with an xml url and press the button 'Test Connection' I got a login prompt from the Eclipse IDE.
But this prompt did not allways apear. This is really a strange behaivor and I can not found the reason why this is not working on some clients.

Can you take a look at this posting:
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/276221/
It seems to me that egit is changing the extension point org.eclipse.equinox.security.loginModule which leads into this problem?

Ralph,

I am not certain but it sounds like you may be right.

In the meantime I am absolutely sure that the EGit Plugin is responsible for that problem. Also my own Plugin (Imixs Workflow Modeler) is affected from the EGit behavior.
I am now activating/deactivating the Egit plugin several times a day Sad
