In Topic: Perforce password (P4PASSWD) invalid or unset when using p4python

19 February 2019 - 04:49 AM

Joel, Thanks for approving. I did come across a couple of postings in the About the Forums section where a couple of people inquire about approval of postings (granted they are from early 2018).

I'm using Assembla to host Perforce, so I'd have to see what security setting they are using (when I try 'p4 configure show security' it states I don't have permissions for the operation).

I guess I'll work on the assumption that what I am doing is "correct" solely based on it works. Hopefully the documentation around this could be improved. It's pretty vague about this, although I read a SO posting where one person act replied indicated it was very clear, but I didn't see the clarity they stated existed. There are only 2 sections which refer to p4.password: "Logging into Perforce using ticket-based authentication" and "Changing your password". And in both cases they indicate password versus ticket as the value to set.

Anyways, thanks again for the approval and your help.
