Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 767186
Inform user about possible ways of configuration
Last modified: 2015-02-01 17:55:14 EST
As described in comment #7 of bug #636000, I expect that ABRT will not save any passwords or credentials if "Don't store passwords" is enabled in Bugzilla reporter settings. This is not true at this time (abrt-2.0.7-2.fc16, libreport-2.0.8-3.fc16).
How to reproduce:
(1) Double-click a not-submitted report.
(2) Press Forward button in Problem description.
(3) Tick on "I don't know what caused this problem", press Forward.
(4) Keep smolt profile unticked, press Apply.
(5) Select Bugzilla in Select reporter.
(6) Error message `Wrong settings in Buzilla' appears, press Configure
fill in User name, keep password empty, tick Don't store passwords on,
(7) Localized modal window grabbing keyboard and focus by Gnome key
ring / pinentry appears requesting passphrase to key ring (it does not say
it's Gnome key ring, but what else could it be?). I press Cancel.
(8) Error message "Error saving event 'report_Bugzilla' configuration to
keyring" pops-up (with dummy `Unnamed window' title). The same message is
printed into terminal. I dismiss the message by the only button Close.
This should not happen.
(9) Then the `Wrong settings in Buzilla' window from step (6) remains. I press
(10) I press Forward in previous window (Select reporter from (5)).
(11) I press Forward in Review the data.
(12) I tick the review confirmation and press Apply.
(13) Next slide titled Reporting says Reporting finished with exit code 1.
Lower Show log prints following error:
--- Running report_Bugzilla ---
Empty login or password, please check your configuration
(exited with 1)
The "Don't store passwords" option causes that passwords are not stored in gnome-keyring but you have to fill in it otherwise bugzilla configuration is incomplete and it means wrong.
I think the label "Don't store password" is pretty clear and it's not saying that it won't save any credentials - the URL and your login name is not considered sensitive, so I don't see a reason why someone would like to not save it. Most users want to save the login name, so this use-case seems so special that it's not worth implementing. You can always delete the credentials from kwallet/gnome-keyring.
What about remembering yet another password for kwallet/gnome-keyring just only to store abrt configuration? Isn't it silly?
We met together with Petr and we found out that the problem is in the ABRT documentation. As I understand, Petr doesn't want to use gnome-keyring at all and he don't know that it is possible to configure required credentials in configuration files.
Inform user about possible ways of configuration.
