  • Occurs in jenkins v 1.510 (and the older one too) with external-resource-dispatcher v1.0b Steps to reproduce: 1. Start with fresh jenkins with resources plugin 2. Create node "NodeT": launch method = launch slave agents via web start 3. Add metadata to node 4. add External Resource TreeNode "TreeNodeName" to the node metadata 5. add Resource to TreeNode: "ResourceName", id=7417, enabled 6. save node 7. start node via webstart 8. download node metadata (output attached): $ jenkins-cli -s http://localhost:8080 get-metadata -node NodeT > metadata.json 9. (optionally modify something in metadata.json) 10. try to upload metadata: $ jenkins-cli -s http://localhost:8080 update-metadata -replace -node NodeT < metadata.json Expected result: Metadata should be updated (replaced) Actual result Exception is thrown: $ jenkins-cli -s http://localhost:8080 update-metadata -replace -node NodeT < metadata.json Failed to authenticate with your SSH keys.

Attached patch adds implementation. it's based on similar function for ExternalResource.
