If I call a FetchCommand (with UsernamePasswordCredentialsProvider) and the username or password is incorrect an exception is thrown:

org.eclipse.jgit.api.errors.TransportException: https://bitbucket.org/user/repo.git: not authorized

or

org.eclipse.jgit.api.errors.TransportException: https://bitbucket.org/user/repo.git: authentication not supported

And if a connection is bad I get also a TransportException such as:

org.eclipse.jgit.api.errors.TransportException: https://bitbucket.org/user/repo.git: cannot open git-upload-pack

I would really like to be able to differentiate between these TransportExceptions by some means other than the text message. Ideally I would like to ensure that the user's password is correct before too many retries lock them out.

Is there a way to check once if the username and password is correct?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Looks like we have room for improvements here. We could either subclass TransportException to differentiate or
add a reason id or enum to the TransportException which would allow to differentiate based on the reason.

"not authorized" means that authentication failed due to wrong credentials
"authentication not supported" means that jgit does not support the authentication method the server wants.
