Description Craig Donnelly 2016-07-26 20:44:47 UTC
Description of problem:
If a user has a protected repository for a custom product in Satellite that needs to use http auth, for example:

This is fine, however this does not work if the users login name contains another '@' symbol, for example if it is an email address:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.2.0 Snap 21.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a custom repository that is available via http.
2. Add a http auth mechanism to this directory, I used apache and htpasswd tool.
3. Try to use repo-discovery against url with authentication using a login name containing an '@'. I have not tested other special symbols.

Actual results:
This fails silently for repo-discovery, but task will be a perpetual paused/error that cannot be skipped or resumed. (Must be manually cleaned/deleted)

Expected results:
Get repodata/sync successfully

Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please feel free to contact Rich Jerrido or Bryan Kearney. Thank you.
