When using some kind of repository like artifactory with user authentication I have the challenge to manage the credentials in BigFix. Why ? The user used for downloading has a password change every xx days.
So, when building a fixlet which is downloading files from artifactory we build a prefetch entry like:
prefetch <PACKAGE_NAME> sha1:<FILE_SHA_SUM> size: <FILE_SIZE> https://:<PASSWORD_HASH>@>SERVER>
This works pretty fine until next passwordchange. With some luck, file is cached on besserver of course.
Question so far: is there any way to have a more or less universal download plugin or any ideas how to store credentials in besenvironment and use it as parameter in action script ?
