Re: Fwd: Git credentials not working




I have replaced the way I fill the git credentials store, I have verify ~/.git-credentials and information are there, the ~/.gitconfig look fine too.

I still have 401 error when reading from that file.

This is the paste log : https://paste.gnome.org/pmntlkdw0

Now that I use git approve, I dont think that I need a custom helper.

Any idea why I still can't log in using git-credential?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for your reply. I have activated GIT_TRACE_CURL=1 and I can see that
the request is failing 401.

I can't see which token is used and using what header ?

The log say:

17:50:26.414654 http.c:657              => Send header: Authorization: Basic <redacted>
Yeah, we redact the auth information so people don't accidentally share
it publicly. If you use the older GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1, it will include
the credential (I think it may be base64 encoded, though, so you'll have
to decipher it).

I have retested the token locally and it work when used in the url or using
`Private-Token: <token>` as stated in the Gitlab documentation
https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/api/README.html#personal-access-tokens
I don't think Git will ever send your token in either of those ways. It
will always some as an Authorization header.

Peff, what would be the appropriate way to input my git credential in a 100%
success way in a CI?
I don't know the details of what GitLab would want, but...

Is this good:

git credential approve <<EOF
protocol=https
host=example.com
username=bob
password=secr3t
OEF
Yes, that would work to preload a token into any configured helpers.
