Hide password for scm login with tomcat

Anders Truelsen (16212020) | asked Aug 13 '12, 5:11 a.m.
We have build scripts (sh) that call scm.exe.
How do I avoid having the password flashed in plain text in all my scripts?

We're running RTC 3.0.1 on Tomcat.

Hi Anders,

I have seen some discussions around this and this post contains an answer, where I collected posts that discussed this.

<quote>According to several posts, you can use the -c option and the file repositories.txt. I haven't tried. Apparently the daemon encrypts user and password and stores that in a file. You can keep the file and use it for login, as far as I understand.

I want to avoid entering the password, too. Therefor I have created the repository.txt file throug using the login command
lscm --config data login -r <repository> - u <user>  -P <password> -c -n rtc

Now I want to use this stored password. I tried this with following command
lscm --config data load -r rtc -u <user> <Repository Workspace Name>

But he still wants my user credential. Does anybody see what I do wrong?

PS: I use the -u option because I want to login with a user that differs from my window user. Otherwise he always take my windows user.

Have you looked into the links in the answer above? I believe they contain information that should get you running.

Yes I have looked in the answer above. There I found the --config option. But in my script he didn't uses the stored connection, and I don't know why.
