#6847 closed defect (wontfix)

To enable connecting with NoUserID (for Testlink integration)

Reported by: tianbai Owned by: osimons
Priority: normal Component: XmlRpcPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: Testlink
Cc: tianbai Trac Release: 0.11


Currently, I have to use 'anonymous' as the username to connect with xmlrpc:

import xmlrpclib
server = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy("http://'''anonymous'''@server/trac/project/xmlrpc") 
multicall = xmlrpclib.MultiCall(server) 
for ticket in server.ticket.query("id=1"): 
print map(str, multicall())

If I use a blank username (NoUserID is configured to be On with Apache):

server = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy("http://server/trac/project/xmlrpc") 

It returned the error "401 Authorization Required".

The problem is that it seems Testlink connects to Trac with a blank username, so it fails unless I hack Testlink's code.

That is quite an intricate set of authentication config details for a particular purpose, but I fail to see how it is an issue for the RPC plugin - or even what is expected to change in the plugin to fix this? The RPC plugin don't provide authentication. Apache does, and it is read and configured by Trac itself long before it arrives at plugin code.

I'm closing this. Please reopen if I haven't understood the issue correctly.
