Hi Alessio
I did not change anything in GeoServer, I am using the one that comes
with GeoNode.
If I create a superuser right now, using the Django administrative
interface, I cannot login to the GeoServer admin interface using the
credentials for this superuser.
Which I believe it should be possible, if basic auth would be in place, no?
I can use the default administrative GeoServer account though (the one
with credentials: admin, geoserver).
Same thing using owslib: I can't login with my new superuser, but I
can using the administrative account.
Thanks a lot
