Build Engine Test connection results in Authentication Failed error
Attempts to test the connection in the build engine editor for a IBM Rational Build Forge build agent causes an Authentication Failed error when using IBM Rational Team Concert 18.104.22.168.
When testing the connection, the following error will occur:
Message: Socket created successfully.
AUTH Unable to set user account to *AuthIllegal ("<Username>")
The password saved from the deprecated testConnection method is a standard password without UTF-8 encoding. The tasks are using the testConnection2 method and will run, even though the password fails with the earlier testConnection method.
This behaviour was filed under jazz.net work item 229212.
22.214.171.124 client and 126.96.36.199 servers.
Resolving the problem
Re-enter the password in the engine editor (and not save) before testing the connection.
