Re: [ide-dev] Having to log in to the IDE?

The password prompt is a service provided by Equinox AFAIK.
Not being able to see who triggers the prompt is part of the problem.

Do we know where the password prompt originates? Does the platform do that
or is it some plug-in triggering it on startup?

Why do I have to log in, before I can use my (desktop) IDE?


Here's what I see:

- I live on Linux where Eclipse's secure storage is not backed by any
domain login,
but requires manually entering the password.

- I install Eclipse for simrel via Oomph.

- First thing Eclipse asks me before even doing anything is to enter my
password
for secure storage.


I don't like this for several reasons:

- I tend to use a good password for secure storage, so having to type in
the
password is a real disruption. I have to concentrate on s.t. that is not
my main
focus of work.

- That dialog doesn't give the faintest hint as to *why* my password is
required,
maybe fraud?

- Even considering the specific purpose of the setup for Simrel
contribution,
I cannot think of any reason why my password should be required.


I would be *a lot happier* with the Eclipse IDE if some or all of the following would change:

- No password dialog without specifying a reason

- No password dialog from background jobs, ever.

- No component requesting access to secure storage in an Oomph setup
where this isn't needed.


Is it just me? How do others feel about this? Stephan _______________________________________________ ide-dev mailing list ide-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx To change your delivery options, retrieve your password, or unsubscribe from this list, visit https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/ide-dev
