I've set it up with external authentication but haven't tried to pull any tools from it yet...been meaning to get around to that. Good to know it would've failed anyway.
Unfortunately "creds for login page only" is not how HTTP authentication works, so that's out of the question.
 
 
My initial thought was that you'd have to disable authentication on some subpages specific to pulling tools from toolsheds. Before replying I decided to test the following:
 
<Location /toolshed/repos/*/*/>
  Satisfy Any
  Allow from all
</Location>
 
which should work just fine, but it does not.
 
 
Moving on, one alternative I might suggest (and this is a small guess), is to have a specific galaxy user specified in whatever backend you're using for apache auth. Then use that username + password in the URL of the toolshed. e.g.,
 
    <tool_shed name="Local tool shed" url=""/>
 
However, I have not tested this and don't know if it would work.  Hope that helps. Please let me know if you find a solution and I'll add it to the wiki.
 
 
Cheers,
Eric

Has anyone set up a local toolshed with external authentication?
Is this expected to work?
 
I have external auth working, but tools cannot be installed (403 forbidden) unless I turn of authentication.
 
If i turn on remote-auth, i have to configure the webserver to ask for credentials otherwise i get an error page.
 
It would make sense to have the webserver request credentials only for requests to a login page, but I don’t see how to do that.
 
For now I’ve just turned off remote-auth.
