Let's say I have a git repository for e.g. -
Now in my system I have -
:~/games/gradle-build-script-/.git$ cat config [core] repositoryformatversion = 0 filemode = true bare = false logallrefupdates = true [remote "origin"] url = https://salsa.debian.org/shirishag75-guest/gradle-build-script-.git fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/* [branch "master"] remote = origin merge = refs/heads/master
Now I want to have my git username and password using https only authentication. How do I do that ?
The answer to that is ~/git-credentials . Can anybody share how it looks like or how it should look like ?
I tried to look at -
$ git config credential.helper --help $
Doesn't tell me anything :(
Look forward to have some more info. maybe with a made-up example :)
maybe having a salsa repo. and a github repo. with made-up names and passwords so there is an idea how it looks like ?
I haven't understood what the store bit is all about -
git config credential.helper 'store [<options>]'
I tried the following from https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Tools-Credential-Storage
This is right now just an example with no real credentials, just to understand how it works -
shirish@debian:~$ cat .mycredentials protocol=https host=github.com username=shirish password=s3cre7 protocol=https host=salsa.debian.org username=shirishag75-guest password=s3cre7 $ git config --global credential.helper 'store --file ~/.mycrendials' ~$ cat ~/.git.store cat: /home/shirish/.git.store: No such file or directory
what am I missing ?
