I am attempting to use ReviewBoard along with a P4 repository.
When I try to create a review using post-review, I get the following error:
*Error creating review request: Unable to authenticate with the repository
using the provided credentials (HTTP 403, API Error 218)*
After enabling logging, I discovered that the problem was that the
'www-data' user was being used instead of my p4user:
Got unexpected SCMError when creating repository: [P4#run] Errors during
command execution( "p4 describe -s 202213" )
[Error]: "Access for user 'www-data' has not been enabled by 'p4
How can I tell the Web Server to use a pre-defined P4 user instead of
'www-data' ? I tried setting the P4 username and P4 password in the ReviewBoard
Repository management page, yet the same problem still occurs.
I also tried setting environment variables in the envvars file for apache, and
I also still get the same problem.
What am I doing wrong ?
