Persist passwords issue -- please fix

Jul 9, 2006 at 6:06 PM
It appears to be impossible to save credentials in Team Explorer when prompted for them. It also appears to be "by design."

If you look at Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, in the Win32CredentialsProvder's GetCredentials(Uri uri, ICredentials failedCredential), the CredUIHelper is called with the NO PERSIST and ALWAYS SHOW UI flags.

Can this please be fixed so that we're allowed to store credentials and have them used silently?

Thanks,

Unfortunately, you'll need to ask the Team Foundation Server team to fix this. We did not write that code.

Okay, thanks.
