OXID 6 EE + Jenkins => composer authentication required


I would like to launch composer “update command --no-scripts --no-plugins” with jenkins command shell but… it throws me:

**Building in workspace /var/lib/jenkins/workspace/jenkins-action-test02
[jenkins-action-test02] $ /bin/bash /tmp/jenkins2367283853190497965.sh
Loading composer repositories with package information

The ‘https://enterprise-edition.packages.oxid-esales.com/packages.json’ URL required authentication.
You must be using the interactive console to authenticate

Probably it is problem with credentials. Anybody know how to set credentials in jenkins?


normaly these credentials are set within the composer



If you follow this advice you will get the oppotunity store the credentials in composers cache.


you can add a auth.json to the git with the credentials inside. put this file in the same directory as the composer.json. then composer will read the credentials from this file.

auth.json content:

      "http-basic": {
        „enterprise-edition.packages.oxid-esales.com": {
          "username": „XXX“,
          "password": „XXX“
