      Description

      I am using Jenkins 1.448, with 'Jenkins own user database' and 'Project-
      based Matrix Authorization Strategy'. I am able to get CLI to work as
      anonymous with permissions Overall build, Job read, and Job build enabled using
      the following command:

      java -jar jenkins-cli.jar -s http://my.domain.com:8080/ build -c
      myJobName

      However, when I try to do this as an authenticated user:

      java -jar jenkins-cli.jar -s http://my.domain.com:8080/ build -c
      myJobName --username myUsername --password myPassword

      I get the following error:

      No such job 'myJobName'

      If I however have Build read for anonymous checked, it works even though I have it
      checked for my other username also.

            Again: the recommended workaround is to use SSH authentication.

            The situation with CLIRegisterer […] is different, because the MethodBinder list is called after using the authenticator. […] Unfortunately this code creates an authenticator but never configures it!

            FTR this was fixed in JENKINS-23988.

            Establishing baseline behavior of JENKINS-12543: no workaround when using Remoting transport other than SSH authentication.
            (Verifying that this affects only @Argument in CLICommand, not @CLIMethod.)
            With the new HTTP protocol in JENKINS-41745, API tokens may be used to set a transport authentication.

            Deprecating -username/-password and login/logout in favor of new -auth option passing BASIC authentication to /cli endpoint.
            Simpler, does not rely on Remoting, allows use of API tokens, and bypasses JENKINS-12543.
            (You could actually do this before but only by embedding userinfo in the -s URL, especially awkward for usernames containing @.)

            Only affects deprecated Remoting-based CLI.
