Checkout/Clone with OpenID Connect Authorization


#1

Hi,

I recently gave Gitea a try and played around with the OpenID Connect authentication… Two things are somehow “strange” to me…

At first, I can successfully authenticate with my used OpenID Connect provider (Auth0 in my case). But then I have to register an account within Gitea. I think it would be great if Gitea creates an account automatically (like other products like WordPress or MediaWiki do too).

Ok, so I’ve created an account in Gitea…

But now I need two (probably with different passwords) credentials - one for the Web-Frontend and one for the Checkout (Clone) of repositories on my PC. I guess it is currently not possible that I can use my “OpenID Connect Credentials” for a “git clone”… Or missed I something?

Thanks for any help and/or suggestions…

Bye,
Michael
