Bug report #10644
user-specific WFS layers are not displayed
|Category:||Web Services clients/WFS|
|Affected QGIS version:||2.2.0||Regression?:||No|

I have a Geoserver with 6 wfs layers. Four of them are open to everyone, while the other two are user specific (i.e., a username / password is required to view and edit them).
When trying to connect to the wfs server with qgis, it ignores the provided username / password and displays only the 4 publicly available layers, while, the other two are not shown at all. On the contrary, when removing all 4 publicly available layers, qgis uses the provided usn/pwd (or prompts the user to fill them) and displays the 2 "hidden" layers.
I believe that this is a bug which is caused due to the presence of at least one publicly available layer.

The same problem also arises with write access to publicly available for reading wfs layers.
Specifically, when having a wfs layer which is read-enabled for all, while being write-enabled for certain users, qgis completely ignores the provided credentials when adding the wfs layer. Then, when trying to commit changes back to the server with wfs-t, an error occurs.
