Hi There

Is there are way to create the Secure Storage file during the Oomph setup/initialization before the Oomph setup GUI is presented to the user?
The reason for asking is we have mirrored the p2 repositories on a repository server internally, due to enterprise constraints.
When users launch the setup of Eclipse, the Oomph installer prompts for the user credentials to access the repository server. From this I have been asked to automate this part so that user do not get prompted for their credentials when installing Eclipse.
If there was a way to generate the Secure Storage file prior to running the eclipse install or during the Oomph setup/initialization that would help greatly.
Thanks
Stephen

As you probably have noticed/discovered, this file is stored in ~/.org.eclipse.equinox.security/secure_storage. This file is used/shared by the installer applications and by all Eclipse applications. It can contain passwords for all kinds of things. This file may not even exist initially. It's the user's personal file, so I'm not even sure if it's possible to create it in a way that stuffs some credentials in their initially. And preference tasks don't perform in the installer, so you can't do this with a preference task (and no doubt you wouldn't want to store the credentials themselves in a setup), but that wouldn't be secure. No doubt any mechanism by which you try to automate this will not be secure and that calls into question why the repository server itself is secured if you're going to try to bypass that automatically...
