Description [src]

Emitted when the message requires authentication.

If credentials are available call soup_auth_authenticate() on auth. If these credentials fail, the signal will be emitted again, with retrying set to TRUE, which will continue until you return without calling soup_auth_authenticate() on auth.

Note that this may be emitted before msgs body has been fully read.

You can authenticate auth asynchronously by calling g_object_ref() on auth and returning TRUE. The operation will complete once either soup_auth_authenticate() or soup_auth_cancel() are called.

Default handler:

The default handler is called after the handlers added via g_signal_connect().


auth SoupAuth

The SoupAuth to authenticate.

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
retrying gboolean

TRUE if this is the second (or later) attempt.

Return value

Returns: gboolean

TRUE to stop other handlers from being invoked or FALSE to propagate the event further.
