Interface CredentialsProvider

  • @Deprecated
    public interface CredentialsProvider
    Jakarta Commons HttpClient 3.x is deprecated in the Jenkins project. It is not recommended to use it in any new code. Instead, use HTTP client API plugins as a dependency in your code. E.g. Apache HttpComponents Client API 4.x Plugin or Async HTTP Client Plugin.

    Credentials provider interface can be used to provide HTTP method with a means to request authentication credentials if no credentials have been given or given credentials are incorrect.

    HttpClient makes no provisions to check whether the same credentials have been tried already. It is a responsibility of the custom credentials provider to keep track of authentication attempts and to ensure that credentials known to be invalid are not retried. HttpClient will simply store the set of credentials returned by the custom credentials provider in the http state object and will attempt to use these credentials for all subsequent requests with the given authentication scope.

    Classes implementing this interface must synchronize access to shared data as methods of this interfrace may be executed from multiple threads
