I want to add a repository to my QGIS 3.4 which is on a private server. The repository contains all files needed (plugin.xml and metadata.txt for example) and has the structure as described here:
To access the repository, a p12 certificate is needed which I am able to load into qgis. The issue is that in order to access the plugins.xml file and zip of the plugin on the private repository, we need to also enter a username and password, which I cannot specify in qgis.
I tried with putting the plugins.xml on a network drive, and am able to see that the status of the repository is set to "enabled". But when I try to download the plugin, I get the error:
Plugin installation failed: Failed to unzip the plugin package. Probably it's broken or missing from the repository. You may also want to make sure that you have write permission to the plugin directory: C:/...\profiles\default/python/plugins
I am sure that I have permission to the directory, any idea how I can specify the user name and password in qgis in addition to the certificate as authentication method, so it can download the plugin zip file?
