Excerpts from Dan Callaghan's message of 2017-02-01 03:17 +10:00:
Now that we have Kerberos for Fedora infrastructure, I would like to
to use mod_auth_kerb (Kerberos)
instead of mod_auth_mellon (SAML).
This will also give us working authentication for the bkr CLI, which
helps with automated job submission.
Any objections to this?
So Patrick explained to me on IRC that they do not want to expand
Kerberos into other services, and (more importantly) they are unwilling
to allow Beaker to query the corresponding LDAP directory which would be
needed for user lookups.
As an alternative Patrick has supplied a patch to support Oauth2 bearer
tokens for authentication in the bkr CLI, which I will work on getting
into the next Beaker release. Once that is done and deployed on
we should finally have a way to submit jobs
unattended using the CLI.
