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

Thanks Andrey, I've debugged some of these situations in the past.
The reason I'm raising the issue on this list is: I feel the
concept is broken by design. Filing bugs against all clients
of secure storage is a game nobody can win, in particular as long
as there is no agreement about good citizenship in this regard.

Am I missing anything?

This can be git client trying to read your repo informaton and may be configuring access to remote, but to be sure, please run jstack next time and fill a bug for the component you will find guilty :).

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
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
maybe fraud?

- Even considering the specific purpose of the setup for Simrel
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?
