[ODK Community] Cannot Enter Password for ODK Aggregate Server Authentication

Are you using a "Google Account" or an "ODK Account" to authenticate to
Aggregate? Currently Collect only supports authenticating to Aggregate with
an ODK Account.

My guess is that the username and password you are using to authenticate on
the phone is your Google Account, which won't work as it should be an ODK
account that you create on Aggregate. Additionally, the "Data Collector"
permission checkbox must be checked to authorize the ODK account you
create on Aggregate to be able to submit data to Aggregate. To create an
ODK Aggregate account visit the "Site Admin" tab.

I am currently running ODK Collect 1.3 (1030) and ODK Aggregate 1.3.1. I
am using Samsung Galaxy Y Pro phones.

I have created an account with Google app engine and an instance to link
ODK Aggregate to. I have loaded ODK Collect on the phones.

The issue arises when I try to point the phone to the server on ODK
Aggregate. I enter the URL instance and then press "Get Blank Form" on the
ODK phone interface. A dialog box pops-up saying that "Server Requires
Authentication". I enter the username of the Google ODK Aggregate account
and then when I try to scroll down to enter the password, I am unable to.
When I try to use the return key on the physical keyboard, it goes to the
"OK" button, as opposed to the next field (the password field).

If I then click okay, the dialog pops-up again, rendering it impossible to
connect to the server and thus download a form.

Am I doing something incorrect or is there something wrong with my
phone/software?

I am doing a training on these phones very shortly. Any help you can
provide would be greatly appreciated.

Did you Change Pasword to an empty password? By default, when created,
users are given unknowable paswords. That said, I am uncertain whether the
authentication protocol will accept blank passwords.

If you do not care to assign a password /authenticate a user, you should
instead grant the anonymous user Data Collector rights.

Hi Waylon,

Thank you for the reply.

I created a new ODK Aggregate user without a password in the Site Admin
tab on ODK Aggregate with "Data Collector" priveleges. I then pointed my
form to the same appspot.com server and entered the new username without
a password. When I then click on "Get Blank Form" the same dialog box
still pops up saying, "Server Requires Authentication" asking for a
username and password.

Is there something further I need to do?
