Description Neha 2014-11-21 04:20:32 UTC
Description of problem:
hammer shell command prompt for username/password but it doesnt verify it.

hammer shell
[Foreman] username: <wrong username>
[Foreman] password for admin: <wrong password>
Welcome to the hammer interactive shell
Type 'help' for usage information
Command completion is disabled on ruby < 1.9 due to compatibility problems.
hammer> user list
Invalid username or password

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run hammer shell command
2. Enter wrong username or wrong password
3. Run any command in interactive shell

Actual results: 
It will fail with "Invalid username or password"

Expected results:
It should verify username password while running hammer shell command

Additional info:
Same way it works for --help, But I think that is less important compare to hammer shell
