Elements

BasicAuthentication - BasicAuthenticationType
References Notes

The BasicAuthentication element specifies the credentials for authentication with a server, e.g. using an FTP protocol or a Proxy Protocol. Child elements include:

  • Account for authentication. For Windows Systems an account could include the domain.
  • Password for authentication. Passwords are not displayed in the YADE log files.

BasicAuthentication is available for a number of File Transfer Protocols and Proxy Protocols. The drawback with BasicAuthentication is that passwords are stored directly in configuration files. In order to avoid this you could switch to using File Transfer Protocols that allow SSHAuthentication, e.g. SFTP.

Element Type Required Description
Account string
  • Min: 1
  • Whitespace: preserve
  • Occurrence: 1
Required
References Notes

Account for authentication at one of the systems involved in file transfer, e.g. an FTP or SFTP server. Usually the account corresponds to a user name.

Should the respective server system be part of a Windows domain then the syntax domain\account can be used.

Support for KeePass versions 1 and 2.

Note: Availability starting with YADE-464.

Referencing CredentialStore fields.

Note: Availability starting with YADE-481.

Referencing a field in the CredentialStore is effected by the following syntax:

        cs://[entry_path]@entry_field

where

  • cs://         is a constant prefix that is used by YADE to identify this setting to be a reference to a CredentialStore.
  • entry_path      specifies the path to an entry within the CredentialStore database. Folders (groups) within a path are separated by a slash "/". This setting is optional. If ommitted then the value of the CSEntryPath configuration item is used.
  • entry_field          is one of the standard fields available in a CredentialStore:
    • title
    • user
    • password
    • url
    • notes
    • attachment
    or the custom fields.

<Hostname> element:

  • Usage like the examples below.
  • If the entry field value is defined with host:port, YADE sets the <Hostname> and <Port> automatically.

Examples

  • Examples for fully specified entry path:
    • <Domain>, <Hostname>, <Account>, <Password>, <Passphrase> elements:
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@title
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@user
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@password
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@url
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@notes
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@my_custom_field
    • <AuthenticationFile> element:
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@attachment - the first attachment
      • cs://sos/mft_server/srv001@my_custom_field - a specified attachment
  • Examples without fully specified entry path:
    • <Domain>, <Hostname>, <Account>, <Password>, <Passphrase> elements:
      • cs://@title
      • cs://@user
      • cs://@password
      • cs://@url
      • cs://@notes
      • cs://@my_custom_field
    • <AuthenticationFile> element:
      • cs://@attachment - the first attachment
      • cs://@my_custom_field - a specified attachment
Password string
  • Min: 1
  • Whitespace: preserve
  • Occurrence: 0..1
Optional

Password for authentication at a server that is involved in file transfer, e.g. with an FTP or SFTP protocol or Proxy protocol that makes use of BasicAuthentication.

Passwords are not displayed in the YADE log files.

A drawback is that passwords are visible in YADE configuration files. In order to avoid this you could switch to using File Transfer Protocols that allow SSHAuthentication, e.g. SFTP.
