Do you know we provide support of NuGet in TeamCity. There we have an option to make TeamCity implement a NuGet feed (via http or https).
NuGet community grows. We start receiving feedback from users who use NuGet Feed behind http basic authentication. Hope you have related feedback too.
Recently, I decided to make TeamCity NuGet runners be aware of feed access credentials. There is a related issue for NuGet support in TeamCity:
I did a research and it turned out there is no chance to make NuGet.exe to avoid interactive credentials dialog. I wish I could provide feed credentials to NuGet before it started. I know how and I use plugins for NuGet. So if there is an API to provide
credentials that would work for me.
I did a research in that direction. Unfortunately I failed to make it work. I blogged all details here: http://blog.jonnyzzz.name/2012/06/nuget-feed-authentication-research.html
My goal is to make TeamCity be able to pre-set feed credentials. This would let uses to be able to hide some packages from public access. There are another cool features that could be done with credentials.
I have also created a number of issues to NuGet:
