Re: Fwd: Git credentials not working




Thanks everyone.

All your answers helped. I found out that the issue was not related to git.

I am using semantic-release to perform a release, apparently git-credentials is not working with semantic-release.

I did also setup the double authentication and every fix applied on git-credentials were simply useless.

Thanks a lot for your help and git is the best software ever made thanks!

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?
Looking at your pastebin, it looks like the server sometimes takes it
and sometimes not. E.g., piping the log through:

   egrep '(Send|Recv) header:' |
   perl -lpe 's/^.*?(=>|<=) //'

I see:

   Send header: GET /example-keys/sample-project.git/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack HTTP/1.1
   Send header: User-Agent: git/2.19.0
   ...
   Recv header: HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
   Recv header: WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="GitLab"
   ...
   Send header: GET /example-keys/sample-project.git/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack HTTP/1.1
   Send header: Authorization: Basic <redacted>
   Send header: User-Agent: git/2.19.0
   ...
   Recv header: HTTP/1.1 200 OK

So that works. But then later we get:

   Send header: GET /example-keys/sample-project.git/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack HTTP/1.1
   Send header: User-Agent: git/2.19.0
   ...
   Recv header: HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
   Recv header: WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="GitLab"
   ...
   Send header: GET /example-keys/sample-project.git/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack HTTP/1.1
   Send header: Authorization: Basic <redacted>
   Send header: User-Agent: git/2.19.0
   ...
   Recv header: HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized

And then that causes credential-store to delete the non-working entry,
after which all of them must fail (because you have no working
credential, and presumably no terminal to prompt the user).

I have no idea why the same request would sometimes be allowed and
sometimes not. It's possible the <redacted> data is different in those
two times, but I don't know why that would be. It's also possible you're
hitting different load-balancing servers that behave differently.
