Terraform Artifactory Backend username/password issue

Good afternoon,

I’m submitting a question on usage of terraform with artifactory as backend.

I’m having issues by following the documentation specifies that the backend (requires username/password), however when Artifactory instance is connecting via SAML authentication, the “encrypted password” is not available as an option and the users (using their own live password) have 401 Bad Credentials with permissions to deploy/cache and delete in a generic repo.

I’m questioning this because looking at the documentation of Artifactory as provider it’s possible to have it as Token. So is there a token approach to the backend? Does the permissions need to be different from Read/Annotate/Deploy/Delete?
