-------------------------------------

             Summary: Can't use Client from a script when passwords are encrypted
                 Key: KARAF-4880
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-4880
             Project: Karaf
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 4.0.7
            Reporter: Paul McCulloch


Without the old -p option there is no straightforward way to use the client to connect to
a karaf using encrypted password authentication.

With clear text passwords client reads the passwords from users.properties.

My use case is an (izpack) installer which uses the client to add features & apply configurations.
The installer prompts the user for admin account details & should pass these to the client.


Using SSH keys is problematic I believe. I would need the user (or the installer) to keep
a copy of the key generated on initial installation for use in subsequent upgrades.

My installer is cross platform, so relying on open SSH etc. as a workaround is problematic.

The -p option was removed from client as part of KARAF-1475 (https://github.com/apache/karaf/commit/d6838dd5a12a13b99c534981273abdbbee5b7f22)
