Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-5585) match server credentials based on server realm
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2017 16:47:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-5585?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15892585#comment-15892585

Andreas Sewe commented on MNG-5585:
-----------------------------------

FYI, Eclipse Tycho has recently (version 1.0.0) introduced a similar feature for [sharing
mirror settings for multiple repositories|https://wiki.eclipse.org/Tycho/Target_Platform/Authentication_and_Mirrors#Mirroring_multiple_Repositories].
As this feature request is similar (sharing settings/credentials for multiple repositories),
the configuration syntax chosen by the Tycho developers (overloading repository/id) may serve
as inspiration.

> credentials for repositories are identified based on arbitrary ID. This is error prone
and fragile design, especially as there's no way to diagnose which credentials are used (see
MNG-5584).
> A realm-based server matching would better follow the way HTTP security is defined, and
could be easily used for other protocols based (for sample) on domain name.
> <server>
>      <id>xxx</id>  
>      <realm>[optional protocol://]repo.acme.com</realm>
>     ..
> </server>
