Hi,
I have registered yesterday and have already signed ECA, but I am still unable to login to gerrit. I have tried with my email and also the username that eclipse account displays. But in all my tries I only get "Authentication failed.". Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

On which page/URL are you trying to log in?

Note that if you are trying to clone, I'm not sure that https user/password authentication works. It's certainly much easier to use ssh authentication so I always use that. There are instructions here:

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Gerrit#Git_over_SSH

There are some instructions there also for generating an https password.

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Gerrit#Git_over_HTTPS

I'm not sure if you've done these steps?

Hi, I met the same problem. the page is "Sign In to Gerrit Code Review at git.eclipse.org" and the URL is "https://git.eclipse.org/r/login/". I can't sign in to the Gerrit to get any SSH key or other things.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for your reply.
iiuc, I will first need to login to gerrit webui to add my ssh key before I can push. And my "Authentication failed" is at https://git.eclipse.org/r/ and so I am unable to login to gerrit webui.

My login at that link uses my email address as the ID and the password is the same one as I use to log into my account via:

https://accounts.eclipse.org/user/login/

Are you able to log into your account? Maybe you can reset the password?

Hi Ed,

I am able to login to my Eclipse account. I changed my password now and re-login with the new password. But gerrit login still fails. :(

I opened https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=565176 to report the problem. I think the webmaster(s) will need to investigate...

Thanks Ed.
I commented in the bug report also, to check if account works in https://bugs.eclipse.org.
