Can't seem to use auth tokens when 2fa is enabled on publish
What I Wanted to Do
Tried to get my project, react-metrics-graphics, to publish to npm automatically per travis’s instructions:
What Happened Instead
It failed, asking for a 2fa code:
- Setup a travis repo to publish to npm using an authtoken on account with 2fa enabled on both login and publish actions.
- Watch it fail as above
Setting 2fa to fail only on login seems to “fix” the issue.
This is a known limitation. See: Publish on CI with 2fa?
Gotcha, thanks for the reply! It is a bit frustrating that this isn’t documented anywhere obvious.
